  • 2909-2999 Riverside Dr Macon, GA, 31204, USA - Macon

    I apologize if this is a repeat request, but the system blocked my last 2 attempts to report.

    Deep rectangle,brick shaped, gashed out pot hole in the breaking area of the left turn lane headed north on Riverside Dr.onto Wimbish Rd. near the traffic light in front of the bank on the corner before the Hyundai dealership.

    This issue was previously reported on 2/15/19. PW(804)reported: Filled pothole with cold mix on 2/15/19 and the issue was closed. It must have been a different hole because the same hole was still there on 3/13/19.

    Please try again,thank you!

    I have tried to give the most accurate location and description as possible, I don't understand how it was missed the first time. I don't know why others haven't reported it also, deep hole.

    Please try again,thank you!

    This property has been an eye sore that invites crime into a mostly safe area. It seems that any work being done has stopped a long time ago. Not to mention property devaluation! It either needs to be fixed or sold to someone who can bring it to the standard of the neighborhood in a timely manner! The property owner, Simmons Enterprises I,LLC, lists Brad Simmons as the agent. It appears that Brad Simmons is also co-owner of the new Macon Smiles Piano Bar at 570 Mulberry Street. I look forward to this issue being addressed and not being allowed to continue as is. Thank you!

    Riverview Rd. Macon, Georgia - Macon
    Sheriff area 3B request: Random, occasional speed enforcement needed to keep non residential traffic from speeding through the neighborhood going to the Amerson River Park, especially on weekends. We don't need someone sitting all day, just an occasional check for speed till they get the message. There are youngsters playing ball in the street that won't move when a car comes. A young man speeding on a motorcycle paid the price today by hitting the brakes too hard in the sharp curve causing him to crash into the ditch. I was in my yard and heard it, knowing what happened because he had just blown by me. I got in the car to go check on him, he seemed stunned, but not hurt. Thank goodness that he seemed to be dressed for riding...no road rash. I told him that he was going way too fast and that I had heard him crash and knew what it was because he was speeding. I reminded him that the neighborhood speed limit is 25 mph! I reminded him that there are people walking on the road, mostly kids. Thank you!
  • North Pierce Ave. @ I-75 N Underpass Macon, Georgia - Macon
    This is probably a GDOT matter. I believe it's part of the "Prince Project". Lights under the underpass were installed MONTHS ago, however they seems to have yet to be turned on because I came through the "dark tunnel" the other night. At certain times of the day, it's very dangerous because of the sun's glare and not being able to see oncoming traffic. Can you please help to get the lights turned on after 3+ years of waiting for them? I seems to never be able to catch the right person in the office when I call GDOT. THANK YOU!!!
  • 2782-2790 Riverview Road Macon, Georgia - Macon

    An asphalt patch has sunken causing a dip in the road that creates a noisy problem when cars and trucks run over it. Not to mention the wear and tear on vehicles.

    Not urgent, but it would be nice to have it smoothed out. Thank you!

  • 2790 Riverview Road Macon Georgia - Macon
    All of my neighbor's got picked up. The problem with a Friday pickup schedule is that's there's "no tomorrow" for pickup as it was when my pickup day was on Wednesday. I don't know whether to leave it out or put it up.
    The problem is that the bin is full and I don't want to have to drag that weight back down the hill due to hand and arm impairments. However, I guess I'll have to because it's too ugly sitting in my yard over the weekend. Frustrating limbo, not knowing when it will get taken care of! I called Friday and was told that it was being passed along to a supervisor. Please help ASAP, thank you.
  • 2817 Riverview Road Macon, Georgia - Macon
    Unsure if this is a right of way or private property. There is standing water in the ditch several days after rainfall because the ditch needs cleaning. With the Zita virus looming, it causes concerns for the neighborhood. Most of the drainage ditches in this area need clearing out because they are clogged or over grown. If it's not a right of way, is there something else that can be done...such as letters to inform home owners with years of neglected drains to clean it up to help avoid potential mosquito problems? Thank you!!!

    So happy to FINALLY have this service back in the city!
    Is bi weekly recycling day the same day as trash pick up day?
  • 2918 Riverside Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon

    Turn lane in front of State Bank on Riverside Drive headed towards Wimbish Rd. is backwards. It needs to be re-striped to be a left turn lane headed north. Before repaving, it WAS a left turn lane. Since the re-paving, the lane markers are also shorter turning into Riverview road headed south than they were before re-paving. The solid yellow line doesn't allow traffic to move over into a left turn lane going into the bank that used to be there....causing a back up of traffic (and angry honkers). I believe that it used to be white broken lines before.

    Please observe traffic trying to left turn into State Bank in the late afternoons, especially Fridays. Please revert back to previous lane markings to make it safer for everyone!

    I have previously talked to some DOT representatives about this issue, to no avail..so this info will need to be forwarded to appropriate authorities. THANK YOU!

  • 3899-3903 Arkwright Road @ River Place Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon-Bibb County

    The traffic signal on River Place Dr. desperately needs a left turn signal. Many near misses there due to the blind sight path of vehicles coming from "a hole" from Sheraton Drive. Heavily traveled by out of towners due to the motels on River Place Dr.

    Thank you!!!

    Lane markings are barely visible.
  • I-75 Underpass (Exit 167) @ Pierce Avenue & North Pierce Avenue Macon, Georgia - Macon

    Disabled white pickup truck has been sitting off to the right side under the underpass of I-75 N.(Exit 167) @ Pierce Ave. for over 3 weeks with no obvious notices from police for removal. More than enough time has passed for owner to have recovered the truck. How can officers pass by this daily and not address this? Shameful law enforcement neglect!

    Maybe it's because the area already looks like a slum area that has been ignored, even though it's been reported several times to several departments and this web site!

    Please look at it through visitor's eyes. Does anything about this underpass say "Welcome to Macon"? First impressions are important!!! Is this the "slum" image we want our visitor's to get the impression from?
    Shameful and embarrassing.

    Please clean up and improve the area ASAP! Thank you!

  • 765 Thurmond Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon
    Yard debris needs to be picked up,please. It's been waiting 3 weeks for pickup. Thank you!
  • 2466 N. Nancelon Circle @ Thurmond Dr. Macon, Georgia - Macon

    This property is occupied, but the yard remains unkept and overgrown. It's an eyesore and health hazard for the whole neighborhood. The picture was taken in June, but it's much worse now with very tall weeds. It's a corner lot, so I'm not sure if the address is on N. Nancelon Circle or Thurmond Dr. (driveway is on Thurmond, but numbers seem to be N. Nancelon).

    ***The right of way on the undeveloped portions of N. Nancelon is severely overgrown also.

    Thank you for your help with this annoying issue!

  • 2350-2398 Riverside Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon
    Grass and weeds need cutting back at the bus stop on Riverside @ Corbin. They are blocking the view exiting Corbin Ave. unto Riverside. Dangerous! Thank you!
  • 775 Thurmond Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon

    Every time it rains, we get ponding on the road in front of this residence. This has been a problem for years. The picture doesn't do it justice. It was taken a couple of days after a heavy rain. It takes a while for it to evaporate.

    The ground was so soggy at this residence last week, that it caused a healthy tree in the front yard to uproot and crash into the house, causing major damage.

    Seems like an easy fix to just cut a couple of paths to create culverts into the drainage ditch.

  • 812 Corbin Avenue At S. Nancelon Circle Macon, Georgia - Macon

    I told GA Power workers about the tree when they were doing their trimming in the area. They ignored this dangerous tree. Cut another across the street, but left the wood on S. Nancelon and Corbin.

    The tree has been leaning toward the wires for over a year. I worry about having to travel underneath it everyday. When it goes it's going to take all of the utility lines with it. I can't believe it's lasted this long.

    Now the roots are starting to crack the road on Corbin Ave. It appears to be a senior citizen's house,I never see any activity and the car never seems to move.

    Please help before someone is hurt or we are left without utilities for the whole area.

  • I-75n Exit 167 Underpass At North Pierce Avenue Macon, Georgia - Macon

    Lighting needed in the dark area of the I-75N underpass at N. Pierce Ave. Exit 167. It's dangerous! I almost pulled out in front of a dark colored car about 1:00 PM, turning left from N. Pierce, because I couldn't see them.

    Median needs to be cleaned up and painted with metallic paint. So dark, can't see at certain times of day.

    Bad design...Who designed this "dark hole tunnel" with no lighting? Atlanta has lighting under their "tunnels", why can't Macon?

    I'm REALLY tired of looking at this eye soar at least twice daily, as well as dealing with the other issues previously addressed. Pigeons are roosting under there also. Can't some prison detail be put to work to at least sweep up the loose rocks?

    Please expedite before someone gets killed because of the bad lighting issues.

    Please look at it through a visitor's eyes. Does anything about this underpass say "Welcome to Macon"?
