I absolutely DO NOT like the morning and afternoon traffic on Reserve Street! 

There are way too many cars and  stoplights that lead to a patience-taxing drive.  Brooks and other major north(ish) - south(ish)  streets can be just as bad on most days.  It seems that a city this size should not have such congestion on one of it's main arterials!

 

 

Now, I'm not a city planner or D.O.T. specialist, but what if there were a short freeway that spanned the distance between I-90 and, oh I don't know... somewhere south west of the Missoula Country Club?  You would have exits for Mullan Rd., South 3rd St. West, and South Ave. West.

More convenient? YES!  Expensive and intrusive? UN-IMAGINABLE!

What do you think?
