LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Providence Road traffic must be managed

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 | 4:57 p.m. CDT

The City Council voted to rescind its previous unanimous decision for starting Phase 1 of the Providence Road improvement. For all people who travel on Providence Road between Rollins and Stadium, this means the congestion and safety of pedestrians is compromised and will continue to be dangerous in the present nine-foot narrow lanes. Since the Missouri Department of Transportation has received an F in traffic movement, it will have to act with or without our input. The two houses concerned in the first phase of demolition are not historic but built in the early '40s and late '30s.
