Woodard/Highway 525 intersection is dangerous

Editor,

The new intersection of Woodard Avenue and Highway 525 is likely to be the scene of a serious accident. When turning north from Woodard onto 525 it is impossible to see oncoming southbound traffic, moving at 45 mph, until creeping gradually out across the crosswalk and getting almost onto the highway. Very hazardous.

They need to either make it no left turn road, forcing traffic to use Fish road, or add a traffic light. Or wait until the victim (or their heirs) sues for faulty design.
