As a resident of Old Stage Road I see that road used EVERY day. Keep in mind:
1. The obvious evacuation route issue is the most critical point.
2. It is the most direct route for tourists to go from I-25 to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo or up Old Stage Road to National Forest access. (we already have people lost around here all the time - so we make it harder?)
3. It's not just vehicles that use that road. It is constantly used by walkers/runners/bicyclists - many of whom are guests at the Broadmoor.
4. This issue is part of the Colorado Springs full "tourist industry". Really, about the only industry we have left so don't keep cutting away at it so only the Broadmoor and their high end residents have easy access. I can see the Old Stage/Emerald Vally access being cut in the future as well.
