  • I hope the major rennovations include eliminating the Holland street intersection on Cannon Blvd. Nothing is on that section of street anymore, and closing that section of street could eliminate that traffic light altogether. Entering the square via Spring st. or Main st. would be a simple thing.

  • It will take a while for that type of courtesy to be "instilled" but a great idea even with the 4-way stops.

    I crowded the corner of a six lane street in Yokohama, Japan some years back (as we Americans often do) and although the light was against me, all lanes of traffic stopped. It took more than a few seconds for this inconsiderate American to figure out why they had come to a stop.
