  1. The idiots that designed the North Monroe “expansion” between Sharer Road and the Walmart should be taken out and shot, drawn and quartered, and shot again.

    The North bound traffic is forced into unnecessary lane shifts starting about Lakeshore Drive. The right lane ends in a right turn only lane onto Lakeshore. The middle lane end in a merge left about 1/3 mile further up, just past the I-10 exit onto North Monroe. Meanwhile the left lane splits into two lanes and only 1 of the 3 lanes South of Lakeshore extends to Walmart without a forced lane change.

    Where the left lane splits, don’t. Let the left and middle lanes continue North unbothered. The right lane becomes the right turn lane. A short entrance lane to Lakeshore and be engineered if so desired.

    Traffic moves more freely without the zoo that we have now.
