Letter: Few big rigs travel 39th Street




I have to write about 39th Street. (A Nov. 27 story reported, “Neighbors seek ban of big rigs on 39th Street.”)

My bride and I moved to the Lincoln area in 1994. We both use 39th Street many times daily as the main route to and from.

In those 19 years, I can count maybe 10 to 15 18-wheelers driving on 39th, and they were traveling the speed limit of 25 mph. There also is a bike lane and I have seen less than a handful of bikes on it.

The main risk I see to the neighborhood is the extended curb at 39th Street and Lincoln Avenue, where I have seen many cars making the west-to-north turn into the southbound lane.
