Heavy truck traffic using Baker Street as a through street.
If any one has suggestions to help the city, I'm sure they would appreciate it. Attempting to insult and shame each other and them accomplishes nothing. Kpatt I like the idea of the four way stop but I'm thinking there would be a ton of backup. There's already often 100 yards of traffic backup on Baker and 8th due to the school and commuters in the morning.
I didn't think the no trucks signage alone would have had the impact it has, but it proves many drivers were getting lost. I know this part of Rapids is notoriously difficult to navigate for truckers.
I think something that would help is functionally narrowing the road. I know we lost the grass boulevard west of 8th street, so the street seems very wide like it should be a truck route and that the speed limit should be higher. And I think the bike routes are a big waste. I RARELY see bikes on those lanes, and I myself use a back road, since there is such a high volume of traffic, even ignoring the heavy vehicles. I know us homeowners need the parking and an unused and frankly dangerous bike lane seems like a big waste. If there were cars parked on the sides, not only would it make the homeowners happy, but big trucks would be less inclined to take the route and traffic would probably move much much slower and safer (for the children of course).
