Albero's Traffic Woes
WOW! Albero posted this photo showing the traffic on eastbound Rt.50 at about 3:30 (or so) proclaiming the folks living in the Camden area are now in danger becuse the new fire station is on the opposite side of the river. This is so unfair to that neighborhood!
Answer me this Albero. How fair has it been to the folks on the westside for the past 130 years or so with the fire station on Church St., and later Division St.? This traffic problem through the city is far from new and it's dilemma works in both directions. Maybe you should take a closer look at the access to the westside from any of Salisbury's 3 stations. There are only 3 routes across the river in town, two of which are over draw bridges that may be open any time. The third, when the bridges are up becomes extremely congested. The next access to that part of town is Naylor Mill Road well to the north. Access to the Camden area from station 1 and station 2 does not require the crossing of a drawbridge and the access routes are many and varied. Yes, there may be a small delay in the Camden area but does it compare to the delay that may, and has been experienced by the westside.
Are you putting the Camden area above the properties on the westside? Is the population of that area any less deserving of rapid fire protection? Kinda' sounds like your being a little biased to me. Maybe just a wee bit racist?
