Keep trucks off Stafford/Elligsen
I recently noticed a remarkable increase in traffic using Ellisen Road to connect to Stafford Road and on to I-205. While this frequently occurred when there was a backup in traffic on I-5, it now appears to happen any time of day.
It is a difficult and dangerous intersection to maneuver in a large SUV, but now I see large semi trucks using this route as an alternative to continuing to use I-5 to exit to 205.
I understand that there is a plan in the future to redesign this 65th Avenue-Ellison-Stafford intersections, but in the meantime it would seem prudent to prohibit large commercial truck traffic on Ellison Road.
