Dear Mr. Moini and Mr.
The last thing we need is a roundabout at this
intersection. The name alone should give you enough reason.
Roundabouts are for streets not highways or State Routes. The average
speed on a roundabout is 15-25 MPH. SR169 speed is 45 MPH as well as
Roundabouts require more land and take away
private property. No private property owner wants his or her property
taken away by big government. There is too much of this
illegitimate stealing of private homes and land going on now, especially in
The idea is to increase the flow of traffic not
slow everybody down to unacceptable reduced speeds going in
I have lived out here 30 years and am within a
mile of the intersection. We already have a signal light at 400th and
SR169. If people need a light to get onto SR169 during commute
hours, let them use the 400th signal.
Another signal is not the answer either.
SR169 is a highway not a street to force people to stop every mile or
two. If you have to decide who waits a few minutes, let it be those
on 416th, not the people on SR169. I say that as a property and
home owner on 10 acres off of 416th near the
I have any number of ways to get into Enumclaw
and onto SR169 beside 416th. If people don't want to wait for a few
minutes, they can go to 400th and use that signal.
We have too many signals lights on SR169
already. The DOT has added a new signal every few years between Enumclaw
and Renton. You are turning the only highway we have north
bound out of Enumclaw and south bound into Enumclaw into a rural stop and go
Highway SR164 does not have any lights from
Enumclaw to Auburn and the Muckleshoot gambling casino
area. Where is the evidence a light is needed. Just
because a few people complain or are impatient, does not justify
stopping up SR169 for the majority of the traffic.
