Sorry, I disagree. A freeway would not just hurt Patterson. You'd be a fool if you think Modesto, Turlock, Merced arn't looking at this and what that would do to their economy.Give me a break. Regardless of the money we are going to have to pay sometime whether you like it or not..eventually it is going to happen. And as far as the commuters are concerned..THIS CITY was the one who build homes and people bought, if you want to be pissed with someone be pissed with the City of Patterson and go let the councel know how you feel they are the ones calling the shots and for your info. are about to build more than 3000 homes minumum. If they don't do anything about the traffic it will be bad for everyone including yourself and not JUST commuters going to work, this is for every day usage because of the expanding growth and safety for people traveling and truckers. there are a lot of scenerios to consider. So too bad it's going to happen one day and will all have to deal with it.<quoted text>
And with what's going on with gasoline and the middle east, those commuters would be wiser to live where they work, or support mass transit.
