The new V-A Clinic on South Trimble Road in Mansfield is attracting large numbers of veterans seeking medical care.

But turning left from the southbound lane of the heavily-traveled road into the clinic's front entrance can mean a long wait until northbound traffic clears, so local Korean War veteran Johnny Givand hopes something can be done to improve the traffic flow.

He suggests a traffic light be installed or the road be widened to include a turning lane. The clinic has a rear entrance off of Marion Avenue, but that's for employees only, for security reasons.

Givand would like to see that opened-up for veterans, but he doubts that would be allowed.

Getting into the clinic parking lot can be even more difficult with traffic going into and out of the College of Nursing, directly across the street.

Givand will present his concerns to the Mansfield City Planning Commission next Tuesday, April 22.
