Each of these corridors is in a different state of being, and there are different projects already queued up for different areas. The new roundabout on the 49 is a success. All of these areas need to be reviewed in a general study of traffic flow taking advantage of planners available at the Catawba COG.
The top priority needs to be the diversion of passthru traffic coming from Rock Hill, which is the the strongest stream of water so to speak in flooding York with change. We need to dig the channels to send the water where we want it to go. Those who are coming into York to participate in York, should come into a beautiful town and be welcomed with open arms. Those who are just driving through should go around. We need to design this into the roads in such a way that it is simply the driver’s choice to do our will and not something we have to continuously fight and enforce. High on the list, also, should be making the 161 Corridor a nice walkable, crossable developed corridor that would bring some higher-end amenities and also provide safe walking for those citizens who live behind and around the district. Also improvements in such areas like the corner of West Liberty and 321, would go along way in providing opportunity and combating poverty.
