    An immediate solution to the bottle neck at the intersection of Commodore and Aurora would be a re-timing of traffic lights so that flow of traffic on one side is stopped by red while allowing the other to go. The bottleneck is caused by cars trying to turn left while oncoming traffic continues. ie: let southbound go (green) while northbound is at red, light changes, then north bound goes (green) while southbound has red, light changes for east/west bound to go.

    It would be great if the TPO would start to consider dedicated right turn lanes. Also, my opinion.. Aurora road is not a traffic nightmare because it is four lanes. Reducing to two with a "suicide" center turn lane does not seem productive to the increased car traffic in Melbourne. Pay up and use the easements to improve sidewalks for pedestrians.

    I wanted to comment (NOT LIKE) on the following but your system took it as a "like". I do not like the comment...Added April 30 2017
    The intersection of Aurora Rd. and Stewart Rd. is a traffic bottleneck. There is excessive pedestrian/bike traffic due to EGHS. There are no turn lanes on Stewart Rd at Aurora Rd. Apollo Blvd. narrows to two lanes at Commodore. Commodore Blvd. and Stewart Rd. should be 4 lanes all the way to Parkway Dr. This would relieve much traffic congestion and would mitigate the very dangerous conditions on this section of road.

    I DISAGREE THAT IT SHOULD BE FOUR LANES TO PARKWAY. THESE ARE RESIDENTIAL STREETS WITH CHILDREN THAT WALK TO SCHOOL (CREEL, EGHS, JOHNSON). IF SOMEONE WANTS TO DRIVE FROM APOLLO/EAUGALLIE NORTH THAN US1 IS AN OPTION. AS IT IS, STEWART BETWEEN PARKWAY AND LAKE WASHINGTON IS A 40 MPH ZONE AND PEOPLE FLY THROUGH HERE DOING 50+. NO THANK YOU!

    I support the effort to improve this section of Aurora Road. But it is high time for the cost of Bike paths Etc. to be in part paid for by the users. We need Bike registration to be implemented and the cost shared by the users.

    This is the lagging area of accomodation: Sunwood Park and Aurora Road that was just commented on today. Four schools within in walking distance, but no continuous sidewalk on Aurora Road or Stewart for walking or biking safely to those schools.

    This area has the most lagging accomodations for our children & tesidents. There are four schools, yet no didewalk for safe walking & biking. All county money has been invested west of Wickham Road for over 30 years.

    I own the property located at 2335 Aurora. I agree that Aurora does not need to be a four lane road. However, if it is reduced to a two lane road, a turn lane will be required. We also want the ability to turn east and west bound on Aurora out of our property. Also, I see you are calling this area a green belt. We may add an additional building to ur property in the future.

    Owner of Company along Aurora Road. We have witnessed many pedestrian and bicycle accidents (many travel area to local elementary and middle school), because there is no sidewalk or even area alongside this four lane roadway to walk or bicycle safely. A Study is fine but Action and correction is better.
