Traffic troubles at hospital intersection


In response to concerns about traffic congestion at the hospital intersection during rush hour, the city’s engineering department advised council to wait for a report that would have to be prepared if plans for a new hospital go ahead.

City manager Steve Burden said in a memo to council that it would be “prudent to wait for the recommendations from this report to ensure any action the city takes does not become obsolete or redundant because of action required by the hospital developer.

“If the city makes changes to the intersection and then additional changes are required due to the recommendations from the report, it may lead to confusion and possibly result in more traffic congestion or accidents at this intersection.”
