Brian Kondrach started this petition to Mayor Sylvester Turner and

Have you ever had to deal with traffic at Main and 20th? Have you ever had to wait for the light to change when no one was around? Does the fact that there are 6 roads meeting at one spot drive you crazy? If you answered yes, then it's time to update the intersection to increase traffic flow, reduce wait times, and simplify the way we get around the Heights. 

Traffic Roundabouts have been proven to reduce pollution from idling cars, keep traffic flowing smoothly, and reduce deadly accidents at intersections, all things that can benefit the Heights. By replacing the light with a roundabout, drivers will be able to get through 20th and Main without waiting around. It also provides a place for a unique piece of art or green space in the middle of a bleak, concrete, eye sore. Roundabouts also reduce the overall speed of traffic as drivers must pay attention, thus creating a safer intersection, especially in regards to bikes and pedestrians. 

Please sign the petition and get Main and 20th updated to a Roundabout!
