    can’t they send the traffic down carmenita, to 166th , to walker then back onto artesia so as to avoid residential areas..? i live off of artesia and my house shakes like an earthquake every time those semi’s come past. not to mention, all that truck traffic is tearing up the street. pot holes are showing up all up and down the street.
