Kudos and laurels to the city for wisely removing adjacent vegetation to the south of this Avalon-East Mercer intersection, which for a long time had obscured the southerly sight distance view of stop bar traffic at the top of Avalon, previously creating a horrifically dangerous gamble for Avalon traffic turning onto East Mercer Way.
