Columbia: Light Up!

As the population in Columbia continues to grow, so too does the traffic. That means that traffic jams are on the rise and need to be controlled. The best way to do that is to add more traffic lights. That's why I have selected a few intersections throughout Columbia that have become more congested over the years and therefore warrant a traffic light. All though many of them are a result of the redevelopment in Town Center and the new trail going between the Hospital and Blandair, there are others as well. The intersections are divided by the Villages. Wilde Lake is the only Village in which no additional traffic lights.
