Ever been on Lead/Coal in ABQ? Much smaller streets, but way more efficient that St. Francis. Why? Because the LIGHTS ARE TIMED. If you go the speed limit, you catch all the green lights. It's simple.

Why not read and heed these comments "officials" in charge of highways in Santa FE?????? There are many many great and inexpensive suggestions listed here, INCLUDING timing the g.d. traffic lights appropriately, instead of trying to make everyone slow down for absolutely no reason, or have to speed up to dangerous levels just to make more than ONE LIGHT when crossing this tiny town!!! But, this is Santa Fe after all, we have to make it difficult for people to live and work here - my bad...

I think that it is a good idea to take a once in 50 year comprehensive look at the only major through road in Santa Fe. How is it performing? Who is it serving? What are the problems? What is the projected growth?
Instead the planners seem intent upon designing and managing urban development. These dream schemes look like college student projects that are not limited or inhibited by the actual needs and desires of the current residents of the community. The plan is for the future that they can imagine. Does Santa Fe want high density development adjacent to the two Rail Runner stops that will bring thousands of additional people to these locations? Will that reduce the current travel to other locations in the city? Will those areas be depopulated or otherwise blighted?
Santa Fe is still a city of under 100,000, a small city by any measure. Several of the options listed are better suited to cities at least 10 times as large as this. I felt the last option should have been the first, and it would probably have cost less than this "study".

This is a no brainer: Do the easiest and cheapest first, and see how it all shakes out: TIME THE LIGHTS for better traffic flow!!! It works on Lead/Coal and Comanche in Albuquerque! Oh! I forgot...these are probably exempt, double-dipping State Workers trying to figure this out!

The traffic engineering department only hires the best and brightest in the country. In fact, ALL of the engineers in that departmet have their Masters in traffic engineering from the very prestigious University of K-Mart. It is widely known at city hall that there is more brain power in that one room where they all work than all of Los Alamos combined!

Time the lights so you aren't "punished" by the fact that if you catch one red light, you catch them ALL.

Also, traffic exiting S. off St. Francis onto I-25 can be amazingly aggressive (and most people are speeding)--- put a cop or two at Zia and Sawmill.

Government is always filled with the very best and brightest, whether elected or hired. Thats why they should trust them to fix healthcare for everyone. Even those who have it already and are happy with the services ( the majority ), so it can be in the same kind of shape the roads and bridges in america are. The same reason we should continue to expand government services into every aspect of our lives. Remember those founding fathers and their philosophy on government, "Bigger is better" and " If you don't have the money, print it" or the best one, "you can't make your own decisions, we the government make them for you".
