Public meeting about Springville intersection: Tell DOT what you think

Springville, Iowa

Consider stopping in at American Legion Post 331, at 252 Broadway in Springville, on Tuesday (1/12/10) for a public info meeting of interest to cyclists and motorists alike.

The Iowa DOT is hosting the meeting between 5:30 and 7 p.m. to discuss proposed changes to the intersection of U.S. 151 and Linn County Road X-20 (AKA “Springville Road”).

HBA member Lisa Paulos says the modification plans initially did not include accommodations for cyclists or pedestrians. She reminds us that we need to continue to make our concerns known when these things come up. Sooner or later, maybe, planners will not need so much prompting to keep all road users’ needs in mind.

A DOT news release on Dec. 30 said the meeting will use an “open forum” format. No formal presentation, but DOT staff members will be there with plans, displays and other information and ready to discuss the project “informally.”

More detail from that news release:

“Left turns would be allowed from U.S. 151 across the median. Linn County Road X-20 left turn and through traffic would be restricted with the use of J-turns. Right turn lanes would be construction on U.S. 151 at the intersection.

“For general information regarding the proposal or the public meeting, contact Catherine Cutler, transportation planner, District 6 Office, Iowa DOT, P.O. Box 3150, 430 16th Ave. S.W., Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52406-3150, telephone 319-364-0235 or 800-866-4358, e-mail catherine.cutler@dot.iowa.gov.”

Let ’em know what you think.
