One of the main problems is the tax on Gasoline is the 2nd lowest in the country. Do you really want to save .10 on every gallon of gas or do you want better roads? This is what it comes down to.

Most everybody but corporations would like the nice roads but when you buy a million gallons of gas a year, then .10 cents on the gallon is a huge number.

When the Truman Parkway is finished, I believe something will have to be done with that stretch of Abercorn between the proposed fished and the beginning of Veteran's Parkway.
It will will be very cool though. I feel like I don't every go that far south (past Montgumery XRoads) and I think the Truman will make getting to the deep southside feasible.

I personally have no issue with the traffic here, except for 2 areas, Derenne and Abercorn, and merging onto 16 from 95 in the morning. Actually, everyone on 16 is very nice and the merge goes smoothly most of the time. That leaves Derenne and Abercorn, which causes me to avoid shopping on Abercorn if I can possibly help it.

Still waiting on the lighting at 16 & 95. I'm positive I mentioned this before, but they said this was coming, what, 5 years ago and STILL nothing.

...and of course, they definitely need to reconfigure that interchange where it isn't so dangerous.

I think the rumors that they will re-configure the 16/95 interchange may be why they put off the lighting project. Why put up the lights, only to have to tear them down when the interchange is rebuilt?

I wish there was an overpass to connect East Savannah & the Islands with West Savannah and Garden City without having to go through horrible downtown traffic on Bay Street.

I hate driving in Savannah... but besides that.... the city needs to repave every raggedy street because I swear my car is going to need a new front end. I'm so sick of all the raggedy ill paved roads with pot holes.

Will the city ever fix the left lanes of Henry and Anderson streets? Every time I cross an intersection I feel like the bottom of my car is going to fall out. Abercorn and Derenne are the bane of my existence. Thank God for the expansion project of West Montgomery Crossroads & Middleground Road.

If that project even got approved, it wouldn't be for another 10 years at best. They have been talking about lighting for at least 10 years. I'm tired of delays!

Actually, the best and quickest way to get from eastside to westside SHOULD be I-516 ... if only it didn't come to a sudden end at DeRenne Avenue ... but continued on across town and linked up with Truman Parkway! But hindsight is 20/20 ...

I'm pretty sure the other guy was talking about a freeway-type configuration, not a surface street such as Victory. Something more along the lines of Truman Parkway where it's limited access.

I couldn't see something like that happening for Savannah, unfortunately, because it'd require a lot of demolishing and money.. and some of those areas are historic. Like, TRULY historic. Not a cinder block dry cleaner building on West Bay Street type of historic. (I'm still fuming about that BS in case no one noticed) LOL
