    Calvin Jones and Old 98 left turn signal rarely works.
  • Stormwater Archived
    1305 Lowenstein Street Wake Forest, North Carolina - Wake Forest
    The homes along Lowenstein St and Edgware are flooded with storm water run off from the homes behind us on Stackhurst. We were required to build 10 ft away from the property line for a water easement, but this is not maintained or dredged at all. Therefore the homes higher up on Stackhurst flood our yards vs. waters running down the easement to it 'planned' run off on Edgeware/Marbank. Please help!
  • Forgotten Pond Off Of Heritage View Wake Forest North Carolina - Wake Forest

    Epcon (919-815-9987) development company of a new community off Roger's Road is causing water pollution to Forgotten Pond, Heritage Community. Pollution is detrimental to aquatic life. It is limiting sunlight penetration into pond. Pollution can cause negative effects on ecosystem affecting not only aquatic life but increased bacteria to pond. Dead fish have been seen.

    Requesting Epcon remediation to polluted water. Sampling should be tested from pond. Epcon should apply Eco-safe chemicals and water fountain aeration as soon as possible to rectify damage incurred to another community's property.

    3/21/16 Update: Epcon is considering options and not to expect overnight remediation. -per Eric Keravuoir, Town Wake Forest (919-435-9441.)

  • speeding!!! Acknowledged
    North Main St Wake Forest, North Carolina - Wake Forest

    I live near & walk frequently on N. Main & notice MANY speeders going both north & south....even though the lower speed limits have changed. Could a " flashing...your speed" sign be used to slow folks down? It seemed to work well on Durham Rd. to slow cars on the hills by the golf course!

    Something needs to be.done before someone/ child gets hurt. Thanks for any efforts that will help.

  • 120 S Wingate Street Wake Forest, NC - Wake Forest

    This section of Wingate Street which is located between North Avenue and Durham Road has multiple problems. First, it is a safety hazard because it is stretches through the middle of a college campus with a high volume of student traffic; established in 1834, the automobile traffic has long ago superceded the safety of students. Second, the road is long overdue for repaving; the cement pavement needs to be roughed and then given an asphalt surface. Third, the Double-Yellow (no passing) center lines are worn away; cars are constantly crossing over their designated lane into the on-coming traffic. Fourth, cars are parking on the east side of the road, but the parking spaces are not clearly marked, so cars are often poking out into the north bound lane of traffic. Fifth, the Speed Limit should be lowered to 15 MPH instead of the 25 MPH, because it runs through the middle of a college campus (very similar to a Mall Parking Lot). Sixth, during the Summer session, the YMCA is allowed to park a full-sized school bus in a circular area along the road, and this seriously obstructs the visibility of the YMCA youth and the college students, another serious safety issue.

    It is my opinion that this road needs to be re-engineered by the highway department (state, county, or local town) whoever is responsible, so that the safety of the YMCA youth and SEBTS college students becomes a top priority.

    I have lived in the Town of Wake Forest for 10 years. I drive through this section of road a minimum of 4 times a day. My familiarity makes me very aware of the hazard that is presented by this section of road.

    Thank you for your assistance with my request.

  • Intersection Us1 And Us1a Wake Forest, North Carolina - Wake Forest
    The right lane backup of US1 crossing traffic to New Falls of the Neuse could be reduced by making the middle lane an alternate straight through OR left turn, rather than just a left turn lane. Daily I see drivers using the left lane then suddenly going straight to avoid the traffic backup. There have been several "close calls" for accident avoidance by the straight through drivers, who have patiently waited through several stop light cycles to traverse that intersection. The recommended change should provide a short term solution until the intersection can be rebuilt.
  • Glencoe Road Wake Forest, NC - Wake Forest
    Need speed bumps/humps installed on glencoe road. Traffic moves much faster than the posted 20mph speed in the neighborhood.
  • 2844 Steeple Run Drive Wake Forest, North Carolina - Wake Forest
    Vehicle caught fire and is left on public street without license tag attached.
  • 612 Whistable Ave Wake Forest, North Carolina - Wake Forest

  • 1100-1128 U.S. 1 Alternate Wake Forest, North Carolina - Wake Forest
    I reported this last month. Forward green light going S. on S. Main only lets 2-3 cars through intersection before it turns orange. Left turn light is ok. This happens on Sat. evening - I don't know if it does that all the time. Traffic from St. Catherine's causes heavy traffic and the light makes it much worse.
  • 1310 Doctor Calvin Jones Highway Wake Forest, North Carolina - Wake Forest
    The timing on the stoplight here needs to be adjusted to allow more East-bound traffic to flow through on 98 during the 4-7PM time frame on week days. I tried to go through there yesterday and had to wait through about 5 light cycles. Many cars are cutting through the sidestreet (Sienna) to the South of 98 to access S Main w/out going through the stoplight.
