Letter to the editor: Time for a bypass

A resident writes about his concern with trucks coming through Quesnel.

Editor:

I believe it is now time to build a bypass through Quesnel.

On Feb. 26 a log fell off a logging truck on Front St. by Robins Donuts and the crossing to the hospital.

I wonder if it is going to have someone killed at this crossing before a bypass is built.

This intersection is very dangerous to walk to the hospital, with vehicles going through the red light all the time.
