Letter to the Editor

I would like to address a recent article entitled, “Community Meeting Addresses Quaker Ridge Road Improvements.”  While the meeting was well attended, I along with other residents believe that the audience was not as enthusiastic as thought.


Many residents had a great many concerns and questions regarding this project.  Some of the questions included:


- The need to install bike paths


- Who would pick up the cost overrun if one should occur


- How would the entrance from side streets be handled


- What material will be used over the present concrete pavement


- Who will pick up the cost if water lines are damaged in the process


- How will traffic be impacted by the reduction in lanes.


Since this will be a major change that will have a great impact, it is necessary to receive answers to these questions and others before proceeding with this project.


Thank you,

Joyce Orzo
