Description

There are 3 main issues regarding the traffic on Myrtle Street:

1. UPS uses Myrtle Street as the main route once they leave and return to the main location. Starting around 9:20 in the morning, there are between 35-45 UPS trucks that use this street. the return times vary. I would like to see if we can find an alternate route for them as I believe Myrtle Street is not a truck route.
2. The speed limit is rarely followed. Cars who use our street are very often exceeding the speed limit. I would like to have speed limit/traffic calming equipment put on the street as part of the regular Roswell rotation.
3. In addition to UPS, there are many other freight trucks that use our street. Mostly they are very large (sometimes 18-wheeler), very loud, and very heavy.

For the purpose of discussion, I'd like to have more information about the rebuilding of the pavers at the intersection of Norcross and Myrtle St. Myrtle street was closed this Summer so the pavers could be replaced. I understand this work has been done 3 times. I suspect some of this is due to the weight of the trucks who use this street. Regardless of my dissatisfaction with the traffic, as a taxpayer, I'd like to discuss the costs associated with replacing the pavers and more importantly, the reasons why they may need to be replaced so often.
