West Sacramento residents react to 'road diet' construction


West Sacramento residents react to 'road diet' construction
KCRA Sacramento

Engineers are calling this a "road diet" because they've reduced driving lanes on Linden Road from four to two and are adding bike lanes and making space for cars to park.Since last week, crews have been working on re-striping the road and setting up a new traffic pattern on Linden Road, west of Jefferson Boulevard to try to stop speeding in this neighborhood.City officials said they are trying to create safer pedestrian crossings for families trying to get to Southport Elementary or the neighborhood parks.Some residents complained the "road diet" is poorly planned out and are asking for it to be reversed.Others, like neighbor Sylvia Rodriguez, said it's a strange design but it has improved visibility, so people should give it chance.Officials said they believe it will help alleviate traffic concerns and they plan to continue moving forward with the project on Linden Road.
