Challenging travel around Racine
In my travels around my west side of Racine, I have had to avoid certain turns and pavements. One is the rough pavement on Washington, due west of Perry on the south side of the avenue, is needing more asphalt or re-patching. Right at the city line I use the divided roadway instead of Perry avenue. Pavement needed at the intersection for my shock absorbers.
The 21st Avenue/Green Bay road is another problem east of the Chase Bank. In order to go west on 21st, the driver leaving the bank has to make a U-turn a half-block east to go westward; needs to be re-configured. The street planners might also consider widening the 21st/Green Bay road intersection for turns; the roadway might also be extended beyond Green Bay to Oakes Road to alleviate traffic east and west from Durand Avenue in the future for better traffic flow through the future Mount Pleasant east-and-west corridor and beyond.
Hello, Foxconn. Aggressive drivers can plan to reach Oakes Road extension and connections beyond; also benefit traffic in the 16th Street and Oakes Road area from more major traffic build-up. Other corners: Roosevelt and Durand needs lights, and Taylor Avenue at Wood Road needs a three-way stop sign. Drive safer.
