  • Brownleigh Drive And Glenwood Ave Raleigh, NC - Northwest
    The entry into Brownleigh Business Park onto Brownleigh Drive from Glenwood is very dangerous. The crossover for west bound traffic is mis-located 50' too far east for this turn and makes a west-bound turn very dangerous. An east-bound turn is lacking a de-acceleration (from 45 mph) exit lane - also very dangerous. Persons wanting to go into the business park must go up to Ebenezer Church Road exit and enter the park from the back entrance. This is unknown to many visitors and very inconvenient to workers in the business park.

  • 4216 Weaver Dr Raleigh, NC 27612, USA - Northwest
    The intersection of Weaver Drive and Duraleigh Road is a terribly dangerous one. Cars entering and exiting (especially exiting) the Oak Park neighborhood are constantly having to dodge cars speeding on Duraleigh Road. There are many accidents here with injuries. During some parts of the day it is nearly impossible to access Duraleigh Road south from Weaver Drive with the number of cars traveling at high speeds on Duraleigh. Some folks have even taken to going north on Duraleigh and making a u-turn at the quarry entrance because access to Duraleigh south is so perilous. Has there ever been a study on putting a stoplight at this intersection? If not, could a study be initiated?

  • Lake Boone Trail And Blue Ridge Road Raleigh, North Carolina - Northwest
    The hundreds of residents and dozens of businesses between the belt line, Lake Boone Trail, Blue Ridge Road, and the NCMA are increasingly frustrated with a lack of right-of-way exit from (and at certain times of the day entrance into) the community. Our subdivision main entrance--no left turn allowed and right turns must yield to oncoming traffic AND u-turnning traffic. Harden--left turns impossible most times, right turns yield. Nancy Ann--left turns impossible most times, right turns yield. How do we go about requesting stoplights at Blue Ridge/Harden, Nancy Ann/Lake Boone, and Myron/Lake Boone and what volume of traffic would be required? Harden is being used as a through street/short cut off of Blue Ridge to avoid the light at Lake Boone Trail.

  • 8801 Glenwood Avenue Raleigh, NC 27617, USA - Northwest
    The mounted RPD have been allowing their horses to defecate on small residential strips of grass on the corner of S. Blount in front of the Founder's Row Condos. These messes are never picked up (seen a few times, the corner of Davie and S. Blount). Why, when residents are charged $250 for not picking up pet waste, should the RPD feel it is OK to allow huge horse waste to be left on the tiny strips of grass that we all have to keep clean for our dogs to walk? We appreciate all the RPD does for its citizens, but it should be imperative they follow the same rules as its citizens regarding animal waste. Especially horse waste considering the size of the waste, summer coming, flies, etc.

  • Edwards Mill And Duraleigh Raleigh, North Carolina - Raleigh Council District D

    I have seen LOTS of pedestrians and runners crossing Edwards Mill (heading east) with the walk indicator lit and almost get hit by cars turning right from Blue Ridge (I think that's the road). There's no protection for the pedestrians in the way of their own cross--ight or even a sign that warns cars to yield to pedestrians. You'd think car would automatically yield, but they're too busy looking to the left to see if they can turn right that they often don't see the pedestrians crossing.

    An accident waiting to happen!

    Thanks for checking this out.

  • Sidewalk Archived
    8919 Scotch Castle Dr - Northwest
    There is a lot of foot traffic on this portion of Ebenezer Church Rd, people in the area walk and bike this way to get into Umstead Park, but there is a lot of traffic and very little shoulder so it's quite dangerous. The area would benefit from a sidewalk or wider paved shoulder and a bike lane.

  • 6730 Fleetwood Drive Raleigh, NC 27612, USA - Northwest
    The newly erected sign at the corner of Glenwood Ave and Fleetwood Rd (next to Capel Rugs) is glaringly bright! It interferes with safe travel southbound on Glenwood Ave at night.
    Raleigh ordinance states that "the light intensity or brightness shall not interfere with the safe vision of motorists" and I fear that this sign does just that! Take a ride out there one night to see for yourself.

  • 4105 Weaver Drive Raleigh, NC - Northwest
    Our recycling usually gets picked up every other week. It was not picked up on the last pick up day. We put it out again today and it was again not picked up. The can is properly loaded and properly placed.

  • 4204 Laurel Hills Rd Raleigh, NC 27612, USA - Northwest
    Need a sidewalk before people are hit by fast drivers on Laurel Hills Rd. I see many people walking in the road day and evening with dogs or kids or just for exercise. Drivers come around curves too fast for people to move into the grass. We need a sidewalk. Is there a plan for one and when can it be installed. This is a safety concern.
