Looks like another another traffic control light going up at the interstate/ God knows we don't need another traffic control dreamed up by the traffic engineers in Charleston Lewisburg can't get any worse.

Glad that light is going in. The congestion there is getting terrible. Towns with interstate traffic are having to get additional traffic lights to handle the flow.

Speed things up by slowing them down. This is laughable. What they need to do is add an offramp at Fairview Rd and create some cross streets between Fairview and 219. The town keeps getting built up and yet the infrastructure still dates from the 18th century.

Stupid Idea - Rich-lands is the only logical location to deal with the traffic problem.

They're building a road from 219 at Walmart to Fairview Road right now.

That crossover won't help the traffic problem going to and from Lewisburg, it's still going to funnel the traffic to and from down town lewisburg. It will help if there would be a serious problem on 219 south going into town,as a cross over-and outlet but traffic still has the same destination. This traffic light is a costly dumb move.

I love when one of these threads pop up. I didn't know this area had so many traffic engineers..lmao! The best they could do would be to flip a coin on wich side of town gets their building torn down, make it 4 lanes, and raise the speed limt to 55.

3 lights within a quarter mile thats going to be a headache, what lewisburg needs to do is to ban all the pga parking at the fair ground and let the greenbrier park them cars on their property

Lights ain't the problem! If they would synchronize those lights and let traffic move they would probably work. Instead, one light is green while the other just in sight up ahead is read! Ain't gonna work folks!~

"Red"! LOL Sorry! Guess I should synchronize my fat fingers!

it looks like about 10-12 cars can fit between each light. And since they arent smart enough to turn off the light at the state road garage in low traffic times I feel sure they wont be smart enough to synchronize the 4 lights. Looks like Fairview will be getting alot more traffic. How about you guys upgrade that road to help ease congestion.

When the PGA and the fair get going they should leave all lights on and let people travel whatever speed in with working lights NOT cops directing traffic. I know this isn't going to happen but it would be better than having damn blinking lights.

Let them sweat it out like good little civil servants and let them know who the boss is when you pass them by.

I agree that Richlands is the best way to go with this traffic. even if its land-locked, the State can take it or make you sell it, If they want it bad enought they are going to take it , Tuckwillers or not !!!!

One of the construction options keeps the proposed interchange contained within the right of way that the state already owns. The landowners couldn't do much about it.
