Finally! The Department of Public Works should be commended for taking a step toward making the intersection of Vermont 127 and North Avenue safer for all! ("City reroutes Beltline traffic," Nov. 7) I am impressed that we are fixing this dangerous intersection without wasting a lot of taxpayer money. Since we can take right turns on red in this state, I believe everyone wins with this solution. Kids can walk to school without risking their lives crossing that slip ramp. It was very empowering to be at the meeting where everyone in the room agreed to try closing the slip ramp. It is rare in this city for everyone to agree on anything. I am so glad we are putting safety first in this instance! Thank you!
