It would help ease traffic woes during Utah County I-15 project
"Councilman Bruce Carpenter said he didn't think that the road would be properly
utilized by thousands of drivers and it would take up valuable real estate space
in the city."Translation: Bruce isn't concerned with the
massive traffic jams that will waste time and gasoline for thousands of people
who will have to find alternatives to travel during I-15 rebuilding; instead, he
would rather put tax paying businesses and homes on that real estate that will
help fill Lindon City coffers.
Mr. Carpenter lives on the east side of town and most likely works out of his
home so that he is blinded to the need for the road. Those folks who have to
use the freeway and other side roads to get back and forth to earn a living will
be very grateful for other options than I-15 when the construction ramps up.
After construction the connector road will still be a viable part of the
commuting process because it offers alternatives.
