This intersection definitely needs improvements. NE 72nd St always back up during peak hours because of the terrible lane configuration. A sidewalk on the south side of NE 72nd St is also needed.

I have traveled through this intersection many times and while the configuration of the intersection is poor, this project will not solve the existing problems but only replace them with new ones at a cost of $1.7 million. The requested sidewalk is a very needed improvement and a very small piece of the requested budget...this piece should be funded. The adding of additional car lanes is unnecessary as 72nd Street already has excessive capacity. Money would be better spent changing 72nd from its current 4-lane configuration to a 3-lane configuration as was done in the area nearby on NE Barry Rd between N Troost Ave and N Highland Ave.
