This is so stoooopid. There is an easy right now fix without a new bridge.

1)Fill that ridiculous hole next to Sheetz and pull back that retarded guard rail that orfices everything to one lane and provides no turn lane to I64.

2)Sincronize lights and optimize light cycle. Right now, by the time the driver of a stopped car regains consciousness from texting, the light is red again.

3)Stop giving away free landfill to residents yet charging garbage companies. Charge everyone. Right now many vehicles are driving a few bags of trash to the dump to capture a percieved savings.

While on paper Fabricated's top two ideas would work, watch how people drive. Making the whole lane in front of Sheetz a turning lane would be an issue because people would use it as a merge lane into the straight lane instead of a turning lane onto 64. People can't get it where 64 merges into 81 south either. The left lane has numerous signs saying lane ends, merge right and people will ride it out in the left or cut people off that are in the right lane. Watch how people drive in construction sites where signs are posted lane ends in x amt. of feet. There are those who will drive all the way up until the cones merge then cause a bottle neck in traffic just to get ahead 3 or 4 cars.

BTW I'm not saying dont do a major fix. Do a major fix, but that will take years.

Do some fixing for now to help until the big fix. As far as bad behavior, nothing is foolproof. Its only getting worse, modern cars are too easy to drive, mix in texting and the result is a complete zombie state. Its getting rough everywhere with the dumbing down/dilution of the gene pool.
