  • Do you consider this a safe intersection? Why or why not?

    I feel unsafe based on the amount of traffic and the turning lane when turning left onto Mineral. The turning lane is not long enough to accommodate all of the drivers trying to turn.

  • How often do you travel through this intersection? For what purposes (commute, shopping, social, access to the light rail etc.)?

    Nearly every time I leave my home and return home. 3-6x/week

  • How often do you avoid this intersection? What alternate routes do you use?

    I avoid as often as possible by going past the light and turning into Aspen Grove to access my neighborhood rather than turning on Mineral. I have not been able to avoid it when needing to go East on Mineral but that's due to the location of my home. If I did not live in such close proximity, I would avoid as often as possible based on traffic alone.

  • How much more often would you use this intersection if traffic operations were improved?

    As often as it made sense. As previously stated, it is very close to my home.

  • In your opinion, what are the biggest challenges for the traffic at the intersection (left turns, through traffic, signal timing, too much traffic etc.)?

    Through traffic and too much traffic in general. Left turns when turning West onto Mineral. The turning lane is not long enough and creates a hazard for the line of drivers trying to get over and stay in line to turn. I often go past the light and turn into Aspen Grove to access my neighborhood.

  • Do you bike or walk through this intersection? If yes, what would make the experience easier and safer?

    No, the busyness of it makes me anxious and keeps me away.

  • How often do you avoid this intersection when biking or walking? What alternate routes do you use?

    I never bike or walk this intersection. I go in the opposite direction heading West on Mineral when exercising or take my car if running an errand.

  • Please provide additional comments

    The overall traffic is very frustrating and adds greatly to commutes. After turning from County Line to Santa Fe, I have been sitting for 10+ minutes before being able to turn onto Mineral.
