S 19th & College

Construction workers added a concrete median to the west side of this intersection this week. What this means is that I can’t turn left into or out of my apartment complex, which sits between S. 20th and S. 23rd on the north side of College.

Where’s the logic here? There are two entrances to my apartment complex. The east one (which I can’t turn into anymore) is close to the intersection of 20th and College, an almost unused intersection. The west entrance is close to the terribly busy intersection of 23rd and College. This now means that if I have to wait very long to make a left turn into the available entrance of my apartment complex, there’s a good chance that enough traffic will back up behind me to tie up the 23rd/College intersection.

Instead, why couldn’t the construction company have left the median out and allowed traffic to the apartment complex to be more evenly split?

It’s illogical, and it seems to be a waste of money.

There are other reasons why this is a waste of money, but I think I’ve muddled the waters enough already.
