Description

The intersection of FRUITVILLE Rd and Lorraine Rd is a catastrophe waiting to happen. An ever-increasing backup of traffic on both Lorraine Rd and Frutiville Rd causes not only waits of as long as 30 minutes to progress toward the west, but lack of a clear vision line for those poor souls trying to exit Lorraine to head E on Fruitville. Foliage blocks a clear and safe view, speeding traffic prohibits cautious access to Fruitville, lane configuration makes it almost impossible to determine flow of eastbound traffic.Traffic back up has become worse and worse as more residents of Lakewood Ranch attempt to access Fruitville and head west. Residents that traverse Fruitville Rd from east of Lorraine , heading west, back up to as far as the Fire Station on Fruitville Rd.. Yesterday at approximately 9:00 a.m. it took me 30 minutes to head west from the Fire Station on Fruitville TO Lorraine Rd. Traffic was backed up on Lorraine for almost a mile. Explosions of development along Lorraine and in the Fruitville Rd area have brought an increase in dump trucks, cement trucks, and other development related vehicles traversing these roads.
Again, this is intersection is a catastrophic tragedy waiting to occur, and commissioners that supported development appear to have not considered traffic issues impacting the safety of its citizens.
