Letter: Increased traffic disrupting neighborhood tranquility
Ah yes, Spring is around the corner. I anticipate sitting on my patio overlooking Cool Creek, watching the grass growing greener, birds singing and hearing the babbling brook. However, now it is difficult to hear even a babble. The increased auto and truck traffic is causing more than ever tire noise on the concrete over the Keystone Parkway Bridge (no sound abatement barriers exist), more truck noise while passing cars that are assumed to be going 50 mph, heavy loads banging and bumping over the bridge and not to mention the whine of superchargers chugging south up the incline. Already, my wife has had an issue trying to merge onto Keystone north bound off 106th Street. There are few smaller 50 mph speed limit signs, mostly at overpass roundabout exit ramps. I did notice two police patrol cars at the 136th street exchange Friday morning. I only hope that the traffic and noise is controlled and further patrolled.
