Comment By John Hedberg
For Regional Transportation Plan
Comment I am writing to encourage DRCOG to vote against the proposed Jefferson Parkway toll road. I live in Applewood in unincorporated Jefferson County east of Golden. I have followed this controversial proposal for several years, and strongly believe it does not reflect good transportation planning and will increase congestion on roads I use by people not wanting to use the tolled road. In particular, I drive and bicycle Highway 93, which already has twice the state's average fatality rate, and the Jefferson Parkway Highway Authority's own data shows traffic on 93 will increase dramatically.... I just don't see that this is a rational plan for improving transportation in the northwest quadrant. There are better plans out there that will truly serve the public interest. Thank you for your attention.
