Existing roads won’t be eased

Editor:

Re: Towers vote pushed back, Jan. 9.

The proponents claim that the development would improve traffic through extension of existing roads.

Just which roads are they speaking of?

The only road that will be completed with the development is 152A. This road will only be on the lot for now. It will be where the trees are currently and run in an L shape to the loading bay on the south side of the lot.

The extension of 152A Street to 16 Avenue and the widening of 152 Street “will be completed as part of future development and therefore there is no set time frame,” according to the city.

Therefore, 600-plus cars will be using our current roads, not upgraded ones.
