    Parker/Quincy Study –

    Some of the Post article is not written very well…

    The true reason for the study: “The completion of the current study will enable any identified operational or safety improvements to be eligible for future funding, which the city will then pursue.”

    This is false: “The results of the study, due next spring, will help the city to get funding to complete a massive expansion of the clogged corridors.”

    The study MAY help get funding, but it would be for small improvements to help the intersection in the next 5-20 years, while larger sources are funding are found for more expensive large-scale changes (which doesn’t always mean added capacity).
