Richardson Grove's 101 Widening Mulled
I'd always thought about it. Now others seem to be seriously talking about widening Highway 101 at Richardson Grove. I never thought anyone would seriously talk out loud about that.
It is tight through there. I'll be the first to admit it gives me the willies when I'm driving through there opposite a big truck coming the other way.
It's almost as bad as The Slab used to be, but the slab was nowhere near as lengthy as Richardson Grove. Any of you remember that part of the highway way back in the '70s? I believe it was a bit north of Confusion Hill (I can never remember exactly where it is but I recognize it when I see it).
Before they made a bypass for The Slab, you had to go around this real narrow cement slab that seemed to be perched on a cliff. Back then I was amazed it could handle two way traffic, as little room as there was. Scary to me, even in my late teens.
So, it will be nice if they can widen the road at Richardson Grove a bit, but they don't have all that much room to work with down there, regardless.
I wonder if any of the environmental community will try to stop the project, assuming it's eventually approved?
