So you don't like the traffic on your county highway. That's right. Highway. These 130 petition signers are the exact same people that stopped MN/DOT from putting a bridge over hwy 36 and eliminating access. You wanted to keep access to the freeway for youselves. That is what I call a Hippocrates. Its OK for you to have freeway access but no one else. How about piping down and making a decision you can stick too.

mcda0048: Are you familiar with the stretch of highway in question? I am. I live on a road that is perpendicular to the hill described in the article. A sign cautions people to go 40 MPH and states "Hill Blocks View" on Lake Elmo Avenue. Few people pay attention to it and drive 55-60 over that hill. As a consequence, most times when I turn right I end up with someone either flying over the hill and on my tail, or someone tailgating me. I have no idea what this issue has to do with your beef about highway 36, but if you lived where I do, you would have signed the petition too. I should not have to fear bodily injury from turning right on a blind intersection, especially when my road is well known to anyone who had used Lake Elmo Avenue more than once. Furthermore, highways are regulated. Manning Avenue is a highway too. Guess what? Speed limit was reduced to 50, and it has several stoplights now. What argument do you have against making Lake Elmo Avenue a safer road?
