How much time did cutting through Nelmar save?

Probably the most astonishing information determined by data collection was the very little amount of time that may be saved under the best of circumstances by those who had used Nelmar’s residential streets to avoid the May Street/San Marco Avenue intersection. Travel time from the May Street/Magnolia Avenue intersection to San Marco Avenue, a distance of two-tenths of a mile or 1,500 feet, was determined to be three minutes under normal conditions. It takes at least two minutes to cut-through the residential area and then one still has to wait for an opening in the San Marco traffic, delaying travel time even more. So the time saved was a minute at best.
