Description

I live in the Top of the World area which is greatly affected by the new traffic pattern at the bottom of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Now that the northbound traffic from LCC doesn't have to stop, it is nearly impossible for us to egress in or out of our street, Golden Hills Avenue. When I am travelling South and go into the left turn lane to turn into MY NEIGHBORHOOD (I think you've forgotten that this is not a SKI HIGHWAY, we LIVE HERE) I am either nearly rear ended from behind or hit head on from the front. There is a 50 MPH sign for people coming down the canyon INTO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD, but they are doing at least 60, sometimes 70. The lines are painted well enough to encourage traffic to veer right and usually the Northbound traffic is coming straight at me. Trying to egress out of our street to turn South is nearly impossible. To turn North is a little easier...thank goodness everyone from Draper and the ski areas can get through, though. I feel like there was NO CONSIDERATION given to the fact that Wasatch goes through our residential area. We live here. We are not just passing through. You made the intersection work for everyone but the residents. Something has to change.
