To the Editor:
It’s certainly time that the RTM and our First Selectman started looking for ways to improve the quality of life for all Westporters.
One obvious way to anyone who drives around town is to find ways to clear the many bottlenecks at our crossroads.
One that can be solved easily but does require some expenditure of funds is at the corner of the Post Road and Riverside. The building is on the NW corner. This building is for sale and now might be the perfect time to buy it.
Buying this property would allow for a second and possibly a third line of traffic approaching the Post Road, so cars going straight or turning right would not have to wait for everyone to make the difficult left turn. This backup sometimes takes three or four lights to get by.
Why not give it some consideration? Thank you.

Great idea Mr. Saltzman. Unfortunately Rte. 33 is a state Rd. They almost moved forward with a purchase the first time it was for sale several years ago, but I believe they didn’t pull the trigger too quickly…...in addition to it being a historical building which would need to be relocated. Maybe a contact to the state DOT office?
