  • Maintain Existing Geometry

    I believe w/ thoughtful pedestrian friendly improvements this is a viable option. Those would include crossings for both sides so one can go from College to the path without 4-5 crossings. It would also include a pedestrian scramble through the entire intersection where no cars are travelling and more delineation between street and sidewalk cross the rail line.

  • Olympic to Howard “T”

    This would NOT be preferable to maintaining existing intersection. I believe this would create more traffic congestion and I do not see any advantage here. It does not improve access @ Olympic place. The current situation has a light, just like this one. This transfers the issues of the 'weave' from Olympic to Adair...MORE people use Adair than Olympic. It just transfers the problem and amplifies it.

  • “H” at Existing Crossing

    I don't know the value created here over the current layout. This disrupts for little gain.

  • Adair to College “T”

    This is somewhat better than the H and Olympic T intersection because Adair get's much more traffic than Olympic.

  • “H” East of Existing Crossing

    Advantage is pushing intersection away from Olympic and Adair.

  • Roundabouts

    These do not seem viable.

  • Runner-Up Concepts

    I like Adair to Meade...those streets are the reasons why people are crossing oddly through this intersection. That deals with that problem. Why would that be a runner up? I also like the pedestrian and bicycle only option. I do not understand the actual plan for 'through traffic' transferring from Howard to College and get through decatur. What is the actual plan there other than abut them at 90 degree turns. Why not do pedestrian here and something more thoughtful up by the high school than what was initially done.
