Math could help on Diamond

Dear Editor,

During rush hour each morning, there is a mile-long backup of traffic from the intersection of Diamond Drive and 38th-Arkansas east through the Golf Club. During the 5 p.m. rush hour, there is a backup on Diamond toward the high school. Often, there are no cars waiting on 38th or Arkansas. A couple of weeks ago, I called the county traffic division and explained that they need to set the signal lights so that they would provide longer time intervals for Diamond Drive during rush hour. The lady told me that they understood the problem. We still have the same congestion, and we may continue to have it for many months, unless the county does something about it.

When there are 60 cars backed up on Diamond, there are typically two or three cars waiting on 38th or Arkansas. This morning, there were two cars waiting on 38th and no cars on Arkansas when I passed by. When the light turns green for 38th Street traffic, the two or three cars move out, and then we just sit there for a long time, while no cars are moving any direction.
