Letter to the editor: Blue River residents shouldn’t support the truck ‘chain up’ station

Michael Tranovich

I would like to support the residents of Blue River and southern Summit County who want to prevent this ridiculous “chain up” station proposed in Blue River

If anyone has driven by the newly constructed chain up in Park County outside of Alma, you will know exactly what I am talking about: multiple street lights, massive lanes, promoting truck travel over Hoosier Pass.

The residents of southern Summit should not be subjected to increased light and sound pollution, and given what a chain up station entails, this is exactly what will happen. 

In addition, the Upper Blue is excellent habit for bear, moose, fox, deer, and many more, yet some highway project will protect that? I think not.

Not a single resident of Summit County should support any sort of “chain up” highway project in Blue River on Colorado Highway 9.
