For the most part the traffic on Highway 10 is smooth sailing. Until you got to Royalton, that is.

According to WJON, the Royalton stoplight has the longest wait time of any light in the state of Minnesota:

The stop light in Royalton on Highway 10 and East Centre Street is the longest wait in the state at 5 minutes for those on the cross street, East Centre Street.  This doesn't mean you'll always wait 5 minutes but during the busiest times of year during the spring, summer and fall, that could be the case.

However, on holidays, the backup starts just after Morrie's Auto outside of Little Falls and lasts until, shockingly, the one stoplight between Sauk Rapids and Brainerd on Highway 10.

This stoplight has gotta go. Luckily, I have some ideas on how to remedy the situation.

#1 - HIRE ELON MUSK'S BORING COMPANY TO DIG A TUNNEL UNDER THE LIGHT

If we tell him there are aliens or something down there, he might even do it for free. We will start the hole in Little Falls and pop out near Halfway Crossing. Down you go before the light, then up you come. Easy-peasy. Good luck everyone.

#2- MOVE THE TOWN OF ROYALTON ABOUT 200 FEET TO THE LEFT (OR RIGHT)

This is probably more difficult than I am planning, but what's say we just pick up Royalton and move it a couple hundred feet to either side of that stoplight. Boom, problem solved. How much could a building possibly weigh? I am sure we can come up with the manpower to get this done.

#3 MONSTER TRUCK JUMPS FOR EVERYONE

I don't mean to be insensitive to the needs of the people of Royalton and their need to cross the highway at any given moment. In order to accommodate those residents, I think we should put a giant, dirt monster truck jump on Highway 10 for everyone to use for jumping over East Centre Street.
