    Thank you to everyone who has worked on this. Our area is amazing and these types of imporovements will only make it better.

    I do not believe there are any serious traffic issues at Waugh and Memoral and would hate to see any of the greenspace that is there changed.

    I have serious reservations about changing the Memorial/Waugh interchange. This interchange is a quick, signal-free way to access both Memorial and the neighborhoods along Waugh, especially for residents of Rice Military. I will frequently use Allen Parkway access at Montrose and switch over to Memorial at Waugh when heading west, specifically because I can access it with very little signal or yielding delay and because I prefer Memorial’s direct access to our neighborhood. Allen Parkway is already a significant disruption to flow and access. To add an additional delay along this segment will serve to increase frustrations of drivers. I would prefer the focus stick to pedestrian improvements to this area. I believe the sidewalk/pedestrian area along Waugh is extremely narrow and bordering on unsafe, especially considering all the visitors to see the Waugh bridge bats and the pedestrians I try to yield for when they attempt to cross one of the Memorial ramps. Also, while it would be pretty to walk through the Crape Myrtle groves and take pictures, I always figured this space was used for drainage, considering the issues with Allen Parkway and the Bayou. I would not think it would be safe to encourage regular access to it.

    In summary, I hope that a recommendation can be made that improves pedestrian amenities without compromising the smoothness of the current traffic configuration.
