Put in the overhead crosswalks as soon before somebody dies

If nothing else we need to make a huge effort to slow traffic down to about 45 MPH at China Hat Rd. If there is no funding for a pedestrian overpass add several warning lights indicating congestion.

Do you think a persons life is important? How many have to die or be injured before you give the crossing higher importance?

It should be the first priority not another round about

Yes it is extremely important, lives should be very important. Roundabouts are not a necessity, pedestrians safety over a major highway should be first before another stupid roundabout!

HIGH Traffic makes it a manditory pedestrian safety issue.

The speed limit should be 55 and there should be NO STOPLIGHTS!!! What's the point of a bypass if you have to stop. Again, a little common sense!

I assume it would cost millions of $ and people will still cross in areas they shouldn't. Why are there sidewalks along the Parkway? Remove the sidewalks and fence it like they do along major highways or accept the fact that people will still cross it and die.

Don't cross the Parkway where there is no crosswalk. It is for vehicles. Crossing the Parkway will result in a thinning of the herd. For all of you atheists out there it is called "survival of the fittest".

We have enjoyed 3 concerts this yr. Since the remodel the acoustics are way better! I can see how the home owners can be bothered by the noise. They should have priority. The venue should be out in Terrebonne & w/better access to parking we think. It’s a big venue that keeps expanding & more people.

I live a mile away. I hear every concert from all the hardcore rock shows to the screaming over a country artist. As long as it ends by 10 (and it always does!) then I am happy. I attended multiple shows this year and each one got better and better. Keep the electronic shows coming!

Live 2 miles away and cannot enjoy a night on my deck - or even with the windows open - during this unrestrained noise pollution.

They have been too loud. Not good when your walls are vibrating!

We live in Tillicum Village, at least 2 miles away from the amphitheater. This summer the concerts have literally shook our windows at times. We are music lovers and don’t mind the concerts, but this has been terrible. We think it must be the new stage because it’s never been this way in the past.

The concerts are great while you're there. However, I'm almost 4 miles away and can feel the bass in my house during most of the concerts. It's extremely frustrating when it's not peaceful inside your own home. I believe that a good compromise can be reached and hope that happens for next year.

50 c0ncerts in the middle of town is simply too much. We feel like we have become Disneyland for tourists.

It's too loud. The noise level should be a choice of the residents, not city council.

I live near Kiwanis Park, and the noise from the amphitheater has been excessive all summer long, especially the last 3 or so concerts. It's never been this loud in years prior. The noise from the closer to me Vince Genna stadium isn't even that loud or obnoxious.
