I’m a 76-year-old retiree and I’ve been driving the road in question (N. Highland Lake Road) for 5+ years on a daily basis. I’ve never met more than a dozen cars traveling in either direction even at peak travel hours.
In my opinion, the Flat Rock Council is merely trying to assuage a very few people who think the new configuration will save them travel time in their multi-task busy lives. What? 10 seconds?
In addition, a travel path for bikers and joggers will, as most other existing ones do, get scant use and is merely an expensive and disruptive “status symbol” to make people feel this is a “hip” progressive community. It’s a prime example of the 21st century “in vogue” keeping-up-with-the-Jones’s mentality.
Flat Rock doesn’t need the road changed one iota, and we senior citizens making our daily round-trip journey to Ingles or CVS don’t need the protracted disruption if the project is instituted.
