Poll Results: Melrose Doesn't Support Support Making Upper Ravine Road One Way

That's what we learned from last week's poll.

Poll Results: Melrose Doesn't Support Support Making Upper Ravine Road One Way

Last Wednesday, Melrose Patch

Between then and Tuesday at noon, 155 people had voted in the poll. 

The results? 

  • 128 people (82 percent) said, "No: All this will do is make the already horrendous traffic situation at West Wyoming Avenue and Pond Street that much worse." 
  • 22 people (14 percent) said, "Yes: There are serious traffic issues in the area and they need to find a way to address that without exacerbating traffic on other nearby residential roads." 
  • And five people (3 percent) said they had a different opinon. 

 suggested that the DCR construct a rotary at that intersection instead of making Ravine Road a one-way street. 

"There seems to be enough space, and rotaries are the best way to direct traffic in a civilized manner," she wrote in the comments section. "This intersection can be like feeding time in a lions' cage sometimes. I do think Ravine Road is needed to help alleviate traffic at W. Wyoming and Pond, especially during rush hour." 

What do you think of the results of the poll? If you didn't have a chance to weigh in with your opinion this past week, put it in the comments section below.
