Idea For 132nd and Giles Reroute

Postby mrsticka » Sat Jun 14, 2014 9:37 pm

I've had this idea for a few years now. I've thought long and hard about it. Reroute 132nd in a manner similar to the way Harrison was in the early 90's.

What do you think of this? There probably isn't enough traffic in the area to warrant a project like this, but I just wanted to give it a shot. The dark grayer spots on the roads are meant to be bridges/overpasses. I know it looks like Giles is a dead end at I-80 at the west side and I apologize for that, but it isn't. It turns northwards up to 132nd with a small bridge over the creek.

NOTE: I had to reupload this because some people were having trouble accessing it. I apologize.

Not sure what image hosting provider you used for that, but after I clicked the link, I clicked the picture again to try and make it larger. Instead I got a very NSFW popup ad. Not cool.

Well, that's very strange. I don't know what to tell you. You shouldn't be getting that message. The image is perfectly safe.

Ya, the image is obviously fine... just don't click anywhere once you're viewing it, I guess. :?

I can't reproduce what you're seeing either. You may want to scan your computer with Malwarebytes in case you have something on your computer redirecting you to a malicious image.

My computer is just fine. I have no trouble accessing the image. I'm sorry you guys are having difficulty with it. If you want, I can reupload it.

I meant that I couldn't reproduce the malicious image that schumatt was reporting. I can see the picture just fine.

Oh, okay. Well, I never got that warning on my computer. I've reuploaded the image and it should be perfectly safe this time.

May want to pull it - I got an ad for wind energy. When I X'd out of it, a pop-up ad for um...."live chat" popped up.

The design for that intersection is done, they are waiting on financing to get it done.

It doesn't look anything like that.

Like a sweeping "S" curve that starts back by Cabella's more, goes up and over the Railroad Tracks and then over the creek before coming back down and lining up with the existing Giles and going under the interstate. Giles will essentially be a "Straight Shot" and 132 will tie in to it.

Sorry to hijack this thread a little but, but regarding the railroad tracks, I think that quiet "no horn" zone LaVista installed on some of those BNSF crossings was a complete waste of money. People complaining about train noise should spend some time in downtown Council Bluffs. Things seem to be just fine there.

I'd always pictured 132nd being the uninterrupted street in that area. Especially now that Werner Park is near there. Guess I was wrong again.

I'm not sure of the actual plans either but stopping Giles as in the pic above is a non-starter. East west traffic is the primary mostly around here.

I also got a popup for wind energy and then something that was completely blocked after. Lets hope I dont have to explain to anyone what the heck it was I was trying to do!

I live up the hill on 132nd from this intersection. I've come to love it for all its weirdness.

It is? I didn't know that.

As for that annoying wind energy ad, just close it. I don't know why it keeps popping up like that. If it were up to me, it wouldn't.

I am surprised you would even think about cutting off Giles road going west, there is a lot of traffic on that corner. A lot.

I'm surprised it even does seeing as how it's mostly industrialized.

I use it to go from Werner Park to 156th St. North. I beats the interstate by 30 or more minutes after a game.
Right now it is an easy route away from crowded E/W streets, once you pass 144th there is really no traffic.
There is a neighborhood to the south of Giles between 132nd and 144th.
How are they easily to go east under this plan?

If you look carefully, you'll see that Giles ISN'T cut off. It takes a left turn towards the north up to 132nd.

That's the design I was referring in the post from 3 years ago. That's going to be so much better when its all done!
