Reduce speed at Timmerman


I would like to see the speed reduced on Highway 75 at the deadly Timmerman intersection. Let's slow the lethal hunks of metal we drive down to 25 or 35 mph. This would be less extreme than a four-way stop or building something.

Speaking of slowing down, what is the big deal about getting to Ketchum so fast by widening the highway? People will have to sit on the highway for many months waiting as road crews work, for what? So that people driving north can reach the bottleneck into Ketchum quicker? Will they get to work faster? I don't understand the need to spend millions to send traffic through a funnel. Maybe instead, part of that money could go into therapy for those who need help slowing down, staying in the moment and shifting their consciousness so that a slow drive is pleasant instead of stressful.

What I love about life in the Wood River Valley is the slower pace. Let's make conscious choices to keep it this way!
