Critical Commentary

Governor Wolf has announced plans to improve the safety of Roosevelt Boulevard with a $12.5 million dollar plan. $6 million will go toward intersection improvements, including extending curbs to shorten pedestrian crossing distances and realigning crosswalk and lane configurations. Another $2 million was allocated to implement right turn lanes for local bus stops and businesses and $1 million was set aside to improve the bus stops themselves. Lastly, $1.5 million will go towards upgrading road signals.


Having focused so much on energy assistance, seeing a number like $12.5 million being used on one road alone is baffling. I am glad these improvements are being made, but I think the fact that this much money needs to be spent really shows our car dependency and poor city planning.
