Traffic backup

Dear Editor:

I hope CDOT (Colorado Department of Transportation) will seriously consider making changes at 8th Street and U.S. 160.

This light caused traffic to be backed up to Piedra Road starting on Thursday and continued throughout the weekend. Can you imagine what the visitors or just those passing through town thought? Even on “normal” days you may have to sit through three lights before getting through the intersection. How about making a turn lane at the school for the people coming from the west because when school is in session, traffic is a nightmare, especially in the morning. Come on, CDOT, do a traffic survey and make changes that will make the traffic flow better.
