Regarding the Nov. 22 article, “Thumbs up for new road: Highway 528 gets extra lanes through Marysville”: For years, it has been a hazard to make a left turn from Highway 528 onto northbound Highway 9. On a blind hill, you turn out in front of 55-mile-per-hour traffic. At least they did give us a left-turn lane to the Whiskey Ridge Road, so we can continue to go north to 84th Street NW, where we have a light to cross Highway 9 or turn left onto 9.
I sometimes think the Olympia engineers have a program to lower the population in northeast Snohomish County by killing us off on Highway 9. They refuse to admit the 55-mile speed is too fast for the strip from Frontier Village to Soper Hill Road and they neglect to put a traffic light at a major junction of two state highways.
