Why was Mesa Street turned into a one way street which now closes off drivers wanting to access the Spruce- Pine Street merger from there? The Mesa Street closure has made it difficult for those wanting to access Spruce and Pine. This was not a problem before.

"As of yet, the city has not received any complaints on the new intersection," Massengill said.

Correction- Yes , there have been complaints on the new intersection project.

Old habits die hard. Never figured out why "they" wasted money on a NO problem... must be it makes someone look like their job is worth their salary.... or it will make all the new Somalis feel more at home.... hey its only taxpayer money... you know the stuff that comes off trees.... I know why!!!! So the PD can justify using their new MRAP armored vehicle to to nail those wrong way driving offenders to the wall....

It took some getting used to. Its not as easy to get into a few of the buisness locations, but over all it is safer.

What a mess!! Typical Deming planning.
Whomever planned that double lane which turns into a bloody mess once you get across Pine from Spruce, surely didn't know what they were doing!! I saw 2 people trying to cross Pine from Spruce today and had no idea where to go (which lane to get into) once they got across to the WalMart. Almost 2 accidents just like that! NO ONE knows which lane goes where, once they get across Pine St.
Huge waste of money and lousy planning!! At least get a signal up so those who are coming off Spruce, won't have to dodge oncoming Pine St. traffic, trying to figure out where they're going once they get across!! And it's just as bad going in the opposite direction....WalMart to Spruce St.
