Letters: Surprise transit issues are a huge mess

Posted 9/20/20

It’s hard to understand why the governor would have vetoed the extension [Re: “Prop. 400 extension is key to growth,” Sept. 14]. Will we get our half cent back if it doesn’t go through? Right?

Letters: Surprise transit issues are a huge mess

I’m struggling with page 1 with regards to interchange of Litchfield Road and the 303? Litchfield ends at Grand. How was it presented to interchange with the 303?

We live in the area of the 303, Grand and 163rd. This is an absolute nightmare. The off ramp from 303 is a joke for two major highways. Then three lanes to two, back to three, etc. Several accidents witnessed here. You have no idea of how many more houses are going in off of 163rd. Another city of Surprise expansion with no preplanning.

I don’t recall how the Bell bridge over the tracks and Grand was funded, but that was a masterpiece.

Perhaps we can put EV charging stations in here and use some of the federal $77 million granted instead for day-to-day problems not ideology.

Thanks for allowing me to rant.
