Learn what 'access control' means

By Lisa Wolf Johnson


Dear Editor:

All Rogers Mesa residents, whether or not you live on SH92, need to see the plans to ADD roads through prime agricultural land that is not near the highway. Serious changes are being proposed. Plan to attend the public open house tentatively set for Wednesday, April 5, at HHS from 5-7 p.m. to view the SH92 Rogers Mesa "Access Control Plan."

Find out what "access control" means to you and your property. Find out what planners consider "key to improving safety." For those of you who risk your necks every time you have to turn left off SH92 on Rogers Mesa, you will discover that none of the three conceptual plans includes a center two-way left turn lane (!!!). And so far no mention is made of reducing the speed limit. If you think these are obvious safety improvements, you'll be surprised.
