    101-175 S Merritt Mill Rd Chapel Hill, NC, 27516, USA - Carrboro

    The light for traffic going northbound (heading towards Crook's Corner) on S Merritt Mill (crossing Franklin) does not stay green for long enough during high traffic times during the week. As there is both oncoming traffic (away from Crook's Corner) and no left turn signal, traffic routinely gets backed up here, leading to only 2-3 cars sometimes being able to turn/cross the street per cycle, followed by a long wait for traffic on Franklin/E Main St.

    I would request someone either investigate the addition of a left turn signal, or longer green light for the traffic heading towards Crook's Corner during high traffic times.

    Northfield turning onto MLK signal sometimes takes 3 minutes to change light. Is there a broken sensor or timer? Timing issue Northfield and MLK Jr Intersection

    Junction Of Homestead Rd And Weaver Dairy Rd Ext. Chapel Hill, North Carolina - Chapel Hill
    Since the repair of Weaver Dairy Rd Ext. the traffic signal doesn't work efficiently; A green light is given to Weaver Dairy Rd Ext. when no car is waiting. To make matters worse - The green light for turning right is then being applied, again, without any car waiting to turn.

    I'm a citizen in Chapel Hill. I'm emailing regarding the traffic light between East Main St and S Merritt Mill Rd, an oftentimes very busy intersection. I believe the traffic light needs a green arrow for those waiting on S Merritt Mill Rd and hoping to turn left. Without a green arrow, S Merritt Mill Rd has a long line of cars waiting to turn left but are stuck for (what can be) 20 minutes because there are too many cars from East Main driving straight. I also sometimes see cars stuck waiting over the train tracks.

    Homestead Road Chapel Hill, NC - Carrboro
    Problem Traffic too fast
    Signage issue/Needs wayfinding
    Feels unsafe
    Location Problem intersection
    Additional Comments There is a crosswalk here to cross Homestead Road into Homestead Park. Traffic goes in both directions very fast and very rarely give right of way to the pedestrian trying to cross even if they are on the crosswalk. Basically cars do not obey the crosswalk or pedestrian crossing signs that exist--it's as if the crosswalk was not there because one has to wait until traffic is gone both ways to be able to cross. Simply adding a pedestrian light to the crosswalk might make cars more likely to give pedestrians the right-of-way. Thank you.

    During the morning rush hour, there are frequently 10 -15 cars waiting to turn left and it often takes 2 or 3 lights before you can turn.

    Can you:

    1) lengthen the turn signal

    2) change the two left lanes to left turn only? Across the street at Mount Carmel Church Road , those lanes were recently turned to 2 right turn lanes.

    Thanks very much and let me know if you need more input from our neighborhood.

    the left turn arrow in the direction towards Durham switches from Green to red. in the afternoons when there is little traffic towards chapel Hill and a lot of traffic towards Durham a blinking yellow for the turn would be most welcome

    I am a commuter into Chapel Hill Monday -Friday almost all year round. The ramp exiting east bound I 40 has always been challenging at certain times. I completely understand that there are difficulties with how to make that intersection work smoothly during high traffic times. But in the last couple of weeks it seems to be worse.

    For the past couple of days I’ve commuted while in line to turn right onto MLK only about 3 cars at a time have been able to turn and fit in the lane without blocking the intersection. For the past couple of days I have had drivers behind me in the queue drive around me to fill up the intersection so when traffic begins they are in line. The only this is accomplished is by them pulling into the intersection blocking both lanes.

    I know there may not be much that can be done but perhaps a little traffic enforcement there would be helpful. Concerned about potential accidents !!
