As a longtime Urbana resident, I have numerous apprehensions about the possible Olympian Drive extension. It seems our hard earned, tax payer dollars could be better spent fixing the roads we already have, not building a new one significantly north of the average Urbanite's normal path. But, a recent article (http://www.news-gazette.com/news/politics-and-government/2010-08-22/i-74...) and user comments have made me think about my objections. With a seemingly greater occurrence of vehicular accidents on I-74, maybe a road offering a different route would lessen cross town traffic on the highway, thus lessening the number of accidents. What are your thoughts? Do you think Olympian Drive would help reduce the traffic volume on I-74, making travel safer? Or do you believe our tax dollars are better spent elsewhere?
