Mayor Screech doesn’t like people using it to travel through his community, it what it sounds like.

It's not the trees so much as the city gardeners parked in the medians, traffic cones pushing cars to the road edge, every second day.

 

 

it's literally 600m long from the tch to the colwood strip.  just leave it alone.

 

It's not the length, it's how you use it.

 

Personally I'd like to see if there is a way to improve turning left off Atkins onto Six Mile without ballsing it up, but I don't know if that's practical.

How about a roundabout at Six Mile Road @ Atkins?

You can't build (your road network) your way out of congestion, but you can create more of it by closing roads, eh?

Or repurposing part of the roadway for different modes of transportation.

It was bee-yoo-ti-ful this morning maaaaaan! Drove right up to and through the light at Tyee and Esquimalt at 8:10 this morning, total elapsed commute time from our front door to the office was about 9.5 minutes. I forgot what that was like. I'm (almost) looking forward to getting back aboard the # 14 bus to resume that normal 14 minutes or so door to door run. That's assuming of course that it actually shows up at my stop.....

Someone hit a deer and got rear ended on PatBay near Elk Lake Drive delaying traffic in both directions https://twitter.com/...909266012004353

Paper says this ended up as a six-car crash; the deer got hit in the northbound lanes (two cars involved here) and was bounced across to the southbound lanes where another four cars collided.

 

What's incredible is that the deer, having been hit twice, apparently left the scene under its own power.

Yes, that happens often. It will run off if it can due to shock but will die somewhere from the trauma of the collision. A deer in that state is actually quite dangerous.
