I hope there's a map of all this in the print / "hard-copy" edition of the paper ? Good try at the word description, but this is just too complicated for that to work well.

Catty cannot afford giving up properties. The school District and the town cannot afford this. Simple solution to the problem- put a light at Race and Willowbrook. That would break up the traffic flow along with the stop light at 10th and Race and allow for a better flow of traffic. Also, a light at Wiilowbrook Raod and Race would alleviate a dangerous intersection.

The problem being addressed here is at Race at lehigh Street. Suring rush hour you could easily sit on Lehigh Street in traffic for 10 minutes before getting to the intersection. They could not place a light right at that point because it is too close the railroad tracks and would create a safety issue, which is why they chose to use 2nd street.
This is way overdue.
It should also help reduce the amount of traffic flying through the residential section of south catty due to the traffic backup
