Let’s put traffic calming ideas to 30-day test run

-A A +A

I would like to thank the writers in Thursday night’s Monitor, voicing opposition to the “favored” options for the Trinity project.
It seems obvious that the options A1 and A2 would be a disaster for commuters, shoppers and those wanting to travel from Los Alamos National Laboratory to the town site during noontime.
Clearly traffic will be slowed to the lowest common denominator and gridlock will likely ensue morning, noon, and early evening. Commuters will, in all likelihood, avoid Trinity like the plague.
The proposed Trinity development project will clearly be affected, and the hope of capturing any of the commuters traveling off the hill each night will probably be greatly diminished.  
The few remaining businesses in town have struggled for years to retain shoppers, why hurt them with these misguided ideas.
If the models that tout quicker travel times are correct, why was Diamond Drive so backed up during reconstruction when reduced to two lanes?
Has anyone made a query to the businesses in town if their sales slowed during the Diamond reconstruction due to loss of noontime traffic?
If there is an emergency response to the Eastern areas needed at peak times, good luck to those needing the services.
