Prevent Stoplight at Dartshire Way & Wolfe Road
Dear Mr. Shahid Abbas
Traffic and Transportation Manager
City of Sunnyvale
We, the under-signed Sunnyvale residents, are writing to communicate our objection to Kimley-Horn Engineering Consultant's current recommendation to install a stoplight at Dartshire Way and Wolfe Road. Kimley-Horn believes that while a new stoplight at Dartshire will enable cars to safely turn left from Dartshire onto Wolfe Road, it will also further increase congestion along Wolfe Road and divert even more cars through neighborhood streets towards Homestead and Sunnyvale-Saratoga Roads as alternate routes to the heavily congested south-bound traffic on Wolfe Road between Dartshire and Homestead.
We agree that adding a third stoplight to the current lights at Marion and Inverness Ways will significantly increase the number of "cut-through" commuters rushing through Birdland and Ortega Park Neighborhoods. We agree that increased traffic through residential streets increases already unsafe conditions along many residential streets. Therefore, we request that you communicate our objection to the proposed Dartshire-Wolfe Stoplight to both Kimley-Horn and to City Council when final recommendations are made.
The Under-signed Residents of Sunnyvale
