Letter: Meeting on downtown traffic this Monday
Recently I attended a DOTPF presentation on the planned improvements to the 10th and Egan intersection and Douglas Bridge, probably both the most important and the least functional intersection in town. This intersection has congestion at peak periods and a relatively high accident rate.
