First Energy could have easily used their Market st. entrance to their new building; after all it is already in a business district.
And how does that reduce traffic on White Pond and move it to Frank?

Never fear Eddyboy, y'alls position as Dyer's number one kneepad boy isn't in jeopardy.

So now White Pond has no traffic just as a few of the residents of that street wanted.(Ever wonder how they were able to make that happen...? Somebody involved has some major connections to the County government.)
Where is all the traffic going? Lots of it is being dumped on Frank but a LOT of it is coming through the small residential streets surrounding White Pond. Let's see how long it takes anyone to come to the assistance of the neighboring residents. From the responses we have gotten so far, we obviously don't have anyone who has an in with the County living on our streets.
Most neighbors to White Pond are furious...something needs to be done.

Not to talk about winter but I am only guessing you will have a lot of stuck cars in the snow due to the fact all the little side streets that rarely got plowed to begin with will now never get plowed. Even though I am pretty sure the chosen few will make sure that the non existant street named White Pond will get done no matter what

The way BJ is a'blowin', Dyer's job may be deleted.

But, good news for Dyer die-hards. I've nominated him for inclusion as the newest Zooperstars character: "Bobble-head Dyer". They're not quite sure, though, what kind of animal should portray him.

Any thoughts?

My point was why not put up a light at the Market street entrance to First Energy and use that entrance to the new First Energy Complex.
I never said that traffic on White Pond should be reduced and moved to Frank. I agree with another poster who stated that White Pond IS a main street and has been for years. I actually agree with the idea of buying out the owners on Frank and widening it because we all know that has always been an alternate route to Market. They need to take the barricades down. It seems like an neighborhood under lockdown to me

Half a year to rack up a lot of complaints on the
road blockage. When people who live on this main
street can't get directly home, something is cer-
tainly wrong.
They could know in three months if this is a good
idea or not. Why a six month period? County
government....

White Pond was never to be the main access to rt. 77 Frank Blvd was. It just worked out that commuters found shoetcuts down White Pond and Pershing. Why not just follow the signs and take Frank? It doesn't take any longer and if it does, it is a few minutes. Geeeesh.

I understand there are a lot of residents who like the barricades. So a half a year to rack up positive feedback. Sorry the city took away your shortcut.

It is good to see people walking their dogs with their families and children riding their bikes on White Pond Drive.
