Road work resulted in race track

I live on the New Improved Prairie Valley Road Express and Race Track.

Dear Editor:

I live on the New Improved Prairie Valley Road Express and Race Track.

The thousands of dollars spent on this thing have now made racing there much easier.

I’ve spoken to the last mayor and the RCMP about putting a speed trap in my driveway, before someone is killed, again, but it falls on deaf ears.

This new sidewalk/bike path runs in front of my house where I lose seven feet of yard and now have a pile of gravel they left for me to deal with.

By the way, this “sidewalk” to make things safer runs west about 200 yards to the most dangerous road to walk on in the town. It just ends.

Logging trucks start at 2:30 a.m. to about 6 p.m. and no one follows the speed limit.

Even the contractors working on the road, who by the way were great, even they were terrified at the speed people drive on that road.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on the circles and this road now being destroyed by huge trucks and racing cars.

Really, I never complain about things like this, but this is nuts.
