Rancho San Miguel’s Traffic Jam

The corner of Ygnacio Valley Road and San Carlos Drive continues to be a very busy intersection during morning and evening rush-hour.  We all know the streets do not match up is a symmetric manner, causing cars going across YVR to yield to cars turning that think they have the Right of way.  The City of Walnut Creek continues to do studies and I’m sure the Transportation Engineers will come up with a solution.  Maybe the lights have to be changed or arrows should be added to direct the traffic.

Near misses are frequent.  Bicycles, pedestrians and cars mixing make for an ugly combination.  Beware Eichler homeowners, caution at the corner!
