    The new and ‘improved’ intersection of Bluff and Sunset is a mess in need of better signs and lanes painted with directional arrows. While the paint truck is out most if not all roads could use a new coat of reflective paint and make them wider as well. Simple improvements for better flow and safety.

      I agree. More clearly defined arrows and lanes to make it easier for drivers to discern the bobs and weaves the roads take.

    I just hope all these people that need signs, arrows, lanes , reflective paint, etc, don’t drive a boat or fly an airplane!
