    Can’t wait to see the impact of the added cars will have on the already congested traffic,especially at
    rush hour.

    We already have too many apartments in South City. That intersection is already a nightmare and ripe for an accident. What will it look like when they start construction on the new city center.

    Traffic is congested during the construction, with all traffic lights not properly working. City officials should drive there so they know what it feels like because traffic is slower now, and not worried about looking good on paper
