North Huntingdon is one of those clogs in the pipes. It has a rich mix of businesses and a lot of traffic. What it needs is a better way for the two to flow together.
The municipality has recognized that and is going to work with Carnegie Mellon University to find out where the artery is clotting and how it can be treated.
Hopefully the $80,000 study comes up with manageable recommendations that can support not just the traffic but the businesses that line the road.
No doubt the study will show best practices and things that would be ideal.
But just like a visit to a cardiologist can result in very good advice about diet and exercise, it only works if it involves changes that can be incorporated easily and sustained for the long haul.
