I recently traveled on Highway 46 to the Central Valley, and every time I have been through there in the last few years, I notice that the intersection at 41 and 46 is still the same old stop sign and blinking red light.
WTF? This intersection been involved in the deaths of many, many motorists over the years.
Why hasn't it been improved?
It's obviously not budget related, because I have seen plenty of other construction that was pretty much totally unnecessary, like paving the triangle in between on and off ramps, building a high speed train, etc. I have also seen the huge project for widening the 46 but for some stupid reason that project has left the most dangerous section of that road (the Y) untouched so far.
How has such an obvious problem been ignored for so long?
