Widening Hwy. 49?

Chuck Carlson

If we allow Highway 49 to be widened, the traffic will become faster and no safer. The deaths that have happened are from impatient people. It will cut more trees and will make Grass Valley become another Roseville. Highway 49 cannot become a freeway with all the driveways and cross traffic that will continue to exist. Legally the speed cannot be increased because it cannot become a freeway. The ones who live here struggle to be here because it is worth being here. Please don’t destroy it for those people who are not in such a big hurry. Highway 49 is just fine, just stay in behind each other. You may be only about two minutes later. Big Deal, OK?
