This sign on Myrtle Street at the New Hampton Inn at the planned community of BoDo makes as much sense as the hotel entrance.
We are going to need on-duty AND off-duty cops along with professional flaggers in orange vests to take care of the traffic mess for strangers trying to get to the hotel on the two busiest one-way streets in town.
BoDo was able to take away most of the public sidewalk on Myrtle for a “loading zone” and you can just plan on having a series of traffic accidents as out of towners try to pull into traffic at the same time drivers are trying to make left turns off Myrtle onto Capitol.
Anyone noticed the semi trucks parked on Capitol in the left turn lane at Front as they off load merchandise into Office Depot–apparently not enough room to get to the loading dock of the second largest retail space in downtown. Seems like it should have been planned better since it is brand new! (Macy’s is largest)
Looks like another example of “Smart Growth.”
