Fans of knowing the back roads to get around traffic in the BLA have a new and exciting option in the newly opened Cyprus Drive crossing.
The long awaited route is now open and allows traffic to flow north/south in east Baxter without having to use the frequently congested 371 / 210 intersection. On Friday afternoons in the summer time that route is a dreaded traffic jam that can back up with vacationers and locals from 210 to College Road regularly. With limited rail crossings, frequent train backups further exacerbate the situation.
The new crossing allows local traffic to move north/south in this area. We took a trip on the new road to take a look at the new features.
