Consider flexible post delineators installed between double yellow (Like west 127 at 59) to safely channelize flow specially between Lockport & Rt 30. Too many cross over 2xyellow into on comming traffic.

@ Ed Arter - you should consider running for the office of Plainfield Township Highway Commissioner next election cycle. You would make a great candidate.

Something needs to be done with Oak/Arnold. I know there has been talk in the past, but I see a lot of accidents at these intersections. Yeah you might upset some people, but save people's lives and a whole lot in insurance claims.
