Suisun council to consider traffic light project

By From page A3 | July 14, 2014

SUISUN CITY — A traffic signal at Walters Road and Pintail Drive should take one more step toward becoming a reality this week.

Suisun City council members will be asked Tuesday to authorize the city manager to enter into a contract for the preparation of construction documents. City staff has secured the funding for design and construction. The estimated cost is about $445,000.

The work will include the traffic signal, updating curb ramps to Americans with Disabilities Act standards, improving signage and roadway stripping and modifying the landscape and irrigation.

According to a staff report, a traffic signal study supports the signal to improve pedestrian, bicyclist and motorist travel through the T-intersection.

The council will meet at 7 p.m. in the council chambers, 701 Civic Center Blvd. A closed session, to discuss property under negotiation, begins at 5:30 p.m.

The complete agenda can be found at www.suisun.com.

    This has been needed for a VERY long time. So many accidents happen at this intersection. Hopefully it will go through and protect us from those who have no patience and those who like to play chicken with oncoming cars.

    You may recall the quote from the movie Starman. "I watched you very carefully. Red light stop, green light go, yellow light go very fast. " (Frightening when you consider this actually happens to our children riding with their parents every day), but I digress.This was a funny scene but it is indicative of the driving most people do today. It is not uncommon to watch the afterburners flare, the front end of a car jump upwards as you know their light just turned yellow. Then there will three, four maybe as many as five cars going through after the red. I believe safety is the intent of this light. However, the more lights you put in, the more likely folks will practice the behavior from the movie. No doubt about it. You might like to know that the speed limit on Walters is 45mph not 60. Enforcement in large doses would remedy that problem and others. Just sayin.

    I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's license.
