Several sections of North Forest Road inAmherst desperately need widening. The stretch between Millersport and Audubon is downright dangerous in the winter. It is a narrow road with deep ditches on either side that carries a high amount of traffic.

Another stretch of North Forest needing attention is the short portion just north of Sheridan Drive, which includes the bridge over the creek. This is a blind spot and can be dangerous.

However, I agree that not all of North Forest requires widening. I drive on this road daily, and no other section requires adjustment. Let's not overbuild to satisfy a brief period each day when traffic is a royal pain.
