A recent letter by Steven Gray grossly misportrayed the Los Alamos Transportation Board’s analysis of the 502 design options.
This letter will address some of Mr. Gray’s comments as well as represent what the board actually did in carrying out its mission to advise the Los Alamos County Council on transportation matters.
Although Mr. Gray wrote “...(the) Transportation Board announced that they had a perfect solution to traffic on Trinity Drive — traffic circles.”
In actuality, what the TB did was recommend further study of the design candidate(s) that best responded to all of the issues the county was trying to address including the goals described in the county’s recently adopted street design policy. This included roundabouts, which technically, are not equivalent to “traffic circles”.
Mr. Gray continues “They (the TB) ...had hired a landscaping firm that found some software that real traffic engineers use to model these circles.”
