    Why hasn’t the Rutland Herald covered the new stop signs installation at Stratton Road and General Wing Road? And why weren’t public hearings held? This is a big fiasco. Traffic backed up to Killington Avenue from 7 to 8 a.m. and no one coming out of General Wing Road. Now traffic turning right into General Wing coming north has to stop and holds traffic up longer. At noon, 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. traffic backed up to Freeman. A post from DPW said this was done because of “neighbor” complaints. None from me, and I have lived on Stratton Road for 42 years. The city allowed The Maples and other office complexes to go in on a dead-end road. They need an entrance and exit to Allen Street, or they need a turning lane on Stratton Road. Lyman Avenue and Brightview Avenue residents didn’t want their streets to go through to Stratton Road and increase traffic in their neighborhoods, so now we have a three-way stop and hardly anyone is coming out of General Wing Road in the morning. Have the people coming out of General Wing Road turn right southerly with no northerly turns, and that will solve the problem. They can always turn around in my driveway!
