I am writing regarding the proposed development at Ash Ave. and Route 51. As with the proposed development for Aldi’s, the same issues still exist.
Traffic at that corner, on all sides is horrendous. I’ve seen multiple accidents on any given day at or very near that intersection. There are times when traffic turning onto Prospect from either direction is backed up on Route 51.
Turning onto Ash Ave. from Huston Hills is a nightmare. We live on the corner of Ash Ave. and Buckingham St.. Traffic on Buckingham St. resembles a racetrack most days as people use it for a short cut to MacArthur Blvd.
The same issues which stop the Aldi’s development should be applied to this proposed development.
