Motorists, passengers, truck drivers, transit users, pedestrians and anyone who uses heavily-traveled Route B in Columbia is encouraged to attend today’s (Tuesday) community stakeholder meeting at United Community Cathedral.
That’s on Towne drive near Domino’s Pizza, and the meeting begins at 5:30.
A roadway safety audit is underway on the Route B corridor from Oakland Church to the Business Loop. You can complete the city survey here.
One of the biggest complaints we’ve heard from listeners involves the Paris and Vandiver intersection, especially after the July 1 death of motorcyclist Mark Lamont there. Resident Scott Elam and other 939 the Eagle listeners have called for doing away with the flashing left turn light.
Columbia Police Department spokesman Christian Tabak tells 939 the Eagle that the investigation from CPD’s traffic unit into the crash that killed Lamont is still in progress.
Residents who lack internet access can fill out a Route B paper survey at D&H drugstore and Break Time on Paris road, and other locations as well.
