Citizens Against Proposed Exit 11 Roundabouts

malta_event_2-001.jpg

To Malta Town Council: Paul Sausville, Tara Thomas, Maggie Ruisi, Peter Klotz and John Hartzell

For over a year the people of Malta have spoken out loud in opposition to the construction of roundabouts on the Round Lake Road Corridor. We have made it clear that we prefer the traffic light controlled intersections and turning lanes which are safer for pedestrians, our children and seniors while also being less expensive. 

We ask you again to stand with the people you are elected to serve, to protect the public good and to reject the confiscation of citizen's property for sub-standard, non-conforming roundabouts that jeopardize our citizen's safety and split up our neighborhoods. 

We the undersigned will be holding you accountable for your actions.

    I have limited my trips to areas that have roundabouts because I think they are dangerous. I purposely drive further on the Northway to avoid the Route 9 and Route 67 mess!

    I am one of the “handful”…

    We drive thru these intersections every day – at least once a day. Putting the Bypass in has dramatically increased our traffic to the point we try to avoid going out after 4:00 PM. These circles will make it virtually impossible to get off the Southbound exit of the Northway and take a left. It is hard enough to turn right but if traffic isn’t stopping by Stewarts, there will be no opportunity to turn left. I have routinely tried to walk across Round Lake Road and it is dangerous as is. It will be even more dangerous when all this traffic doesn’t stop…..just keeps moving as that is what traffic circles are designed to do. Not to mention the impact construction will have on our area all summer. Widen the intersection, provide turn lanes with arrows to keep traffic moving and provide pedestrians with crossing lights and crosswalks. It is apparent that the people who passed this idea do not live here. Malta’s continual construction of buildings, changing of roads, and lack of any limits on construction is driving residents out. Including us and we have been here for over 20 years.
