  1. Why is the street configuration necessary? New York and Michigan get congested enough as 4-lane one-way streets, imagine how bad they'll be when they are only 2-lanes in each direction. Furthermore, there are TONS of flashing lights and yield signs for pedestrians EVERYWHERE on IUPUI's campus, but I swear I'm the only driver who yields to the pedestrians there. Just enforce the existing signs!

  2. Excellent investment! Many times people are too shortsighted to see that investments such as these are just as important as "fixing potholes". And, perhaps I missed it, but could you point out where your / our pockets are being pilfered in this deal, Italiano? I didn't read where any of your (or my) tax dollars are involved.

  3. I see the same whiney liberals complaining about every single thing that Mayor Ballard does to improve the city. There could be an article about him saving a drowning child and your liberals would find a way to complain about.

  4. Oh snap! It's on! Ballard vs. Hogsett. Indy is due for a "real" mayoral race, this will be epic!

  5. This is obviously good for the city and all of its residents. Would you object to any improvements to anything in our city until every pothole is filled? Why? Look, there's a proposal for roads in place, with funding proposed as well, it simply requires the City Council and the Major to agree. It will happen (not soon enough, perhaps, but it will happen). In the meantime, yes, let's do the common sense, demonstrably smart things that will make our city better.
