The new rt.111 is nice when there is not much traffic, otherwise you still have those famous N.H. disappearing right lanes. Where drivers in the disappearing lane think they have the right of way! They don't look, signal or even try to merge. I think the term is yield. Google it! I thought the intersection at rt. 28 was going over or under rt.28. It's okay now until rt. 28 gets busier. Oh well it's still better than before!

Most drivers think that the term "yield" means to hurry up and try and get in front of the next car. No one seems to understand that it means to get behind the car that is in front of you, not next to it. I dont know how many hundreds of times I have been in a yield situation only to have some dumb broad in a mini van pull up NEXT to me and wonder why a problem developes. They toot their horns and swear, all the while they are responsible for the near collision that they were almost in. Hey ladies, its supposed to work like a zipper. Everyone falls in line BEHIND the car that is IN FRONT of them, not NEXT to it.

Sounds like you're talking about "merging", not yielding.

As someone who drives this daily, it is much better. The amount of traffic that occurred by the DPW is gone, and it is much smoother ride as well.

I imagine those living near the lake enjoy the quiet of decreased number of cars driving by the houses.
