  • Hiway 80 From Quaterman To Bull River - Chatham County

    from the light at quaterman rd all the way to the light at chu's, there is little or no signage to help tourist find tybee. I would like to see more signs and even arrows painted into the right lane warning " right lane MUST TURN RIGHT" and, put some barrier to stop the right lane from racing me up the bridge. the lack of signage just adds to confusion that tourist dont need. that confusion just makes the locals mad and does nothing to enhance public safety.

    a barrier should be constructed so that " last minute" jerks and people who always break in line will have to wait their turn or be FORCED to turn right onto johnny mercer.

    i have conveyed this to the state dot but evidently i am not a traffic engineer ....common sense evidently is non-existent at the DOT

  • 12308-12340 Etris Road Roswell, Georgia - Roswell

    The posted speed limit on Etris Rd is 45 MPH which is an anomaly for Roswell. The only other roads in the city of Roswell that are 45 are Hwy 9, Hwy 92, and Hwy 120 (notice a trend?). How has Etris Road remained at this high speed with all of the housing development on that road over the years? Etris is part of the Yellow Route of the larger Roswell Loop concept. Do we think that pedestrians enjoy walking nearby cars that are zooming past at speeds at or in excess of the posted speed limits?

    Roswell indicates that this is a GDOT Issue pertaining to speeds. However when speaking to Rhonda at GDOT District 7, she indicated that this is a Roswell issue.

    It appears that someone is currently doing a speed study on that road based on the speed detection signage that has cropped up recently. Can you please confirm that Roswell has the power to adjust the speed limit on city streets? If so, what is the rationale behind it remaining 45 MPH?

  • 2936 Riverside Drive Macon, Georgia - Macon
    Last year, GDOT had to be involved in this same, exact issue. The used car lot at this location has, AGAIN, erected an illegal commercial sign on the public R-O-W. The R-O-W line is defined here by the curb for the parking lot. The dirt and grasssy area is within the public R-O-W. Please have a crew remove this sign immediately as it violates Macon-Bibb Ordinance 16-11 and crews have the authority to remove anything that is illegally placed on the public R-O-W.
  • 1575 Bass Road Macon, Georgia - Macon-Bibb County
    On Saturday (April 21st) the politicians were not content to leave the ROW clean anywhere in North Macon. Shane Mobley started by finding every other politician's sign (whether it was on the ROW, off off the ROW, or uncertain if it was off or on the ROW) and erecting a large sign on steel rebar in front of it. The starting point for this was on Bass Road, across from the Publix Shopping Center where he trashed the ROW. The same thing has happened all the way out Bass Road and to the end of Foster Road, where there are several new signs from Mobley, Washburn, Bechtel, and Kemp. Since Monday will be a rain day (not good for digging holes) that will be a good time to keep a couple of crews busy as long as they are going to get paid for sitting around the shop anyway. Here is a list of roads where there are multiple campaign signs clearly on the ROW. Bass Road, Foster Road, Forrest Hill Road, Northside Drive, Wesleyan Drive, Rivoli Drive, Zebulon Road, etc, etc, etc. I know it seems like a losing battle, but these people are in violation of State Law (32-6-51) and Local Ordinance (16-11) and should not be allowed to insult the citizens by trashing the roadside without any responsibility whatsoever. GDOT is handling the illegal signs on Riverside Drive and US Hwy 41 because those are federal/state roads. Contact Alan Coleman at GDOT for confirmation.
  • I-285 South/North (West Side) Cobb/Fulton, Georgia - Atlanta Industrial Park
    Potholes and cracks are so bad from the trucks driving on it that it will ruin your car from driving on it. One Pothole is about 2 or so feet deep. The DOT fixes the Top End every year but "forgets" about the West Side that gets TONS of traffic! Please do your magic and get it fixed! Some of the holes have been fixed but between Hallowell Pkwy (exit 12) and S Cobb Dr (exit 15) going both direction the bumps and holes are to the point that if I don't try to avoid them, then you almost get airborne or you car feels like it will break apart. It's mainly in the 2nd from the right lane, but has spread to others in various spots.
  • 156-172 Georgia 138 Stockbridge, GA 30281, USA - Henry County
    There is a brown boarded up house near a church and Chevron just past 138/42 intersection. The second one is a brick house that burnt up where a child was killed in it just before Millers Mill. There is an empty brick house that the DOT used as an office when the bridge was going in on 138. There is a blue house that use to be a barber shop on the corner of 138/Hemphill.
  • 311 South Candler Street Decatur, Georgia - Decatur
    The City of Decatur or the DOT recently rewired the crossing lights at the intersection of South Candler and East Dougherty. In doing so, they dug up an enormous cement block that was the original base for the post on the west side of Candler and replaced it with something smaller. But the enormous cement block is still sitting in my yard. I wonder who is responsible for its removal and when that's likely to happen.
  • 617 Moreland Ave Ne Atlanta, Georgia - Poncey-Highland
    Public record indicates 617 Moreland Ave NE is owned by the DOT and leased to the City of Atlanta under the Freedom Parkway lease. The sidewalk is entirely broken. As the property owner, the City is responsible for fixing this sidewalk. Sidewalk needs to be repaired by City.
  • Willeo Road GA - Roswell
    Several potholes on Willeo Creek Bridge. Resident request repair from RDOT even through although the bridge borders Cobb County.
  • Spring Buford Conn Atlanta, GA - Lindridge/Martin Manor
    The GADOT just recently finish repaving the Spring/Buford Connector. However, the exit ramp to enter North I-85 had many pot hole before the repaving and now they're back, and bigger than before. If left unnoticed, the hole will be worse than before.

    Womack Rd & Vermack Rd Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody

    I know residents voted down a roundabout or was it a traffic circle (they're not the same thing;) at this intersection, but a 4-way Stop sign is so inefficient. It would seem that a regular traffic light would allow traffic to flow so much better but would not be the lowest cost solution. Perhaps we need to better educate residents about the differences between traffic circles and roundabouts and the overall safety of the latter. See http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20090621/columnist/906211023 or http://www.nh.gov/dot/org/projectdevelopment/highwaydesign/roundabouts/documents/Roundaboutsvs.TrafficCircles.pdf What are the city's plans to improve traffic flow at this intersection?

    On the other hand, what was the major objection to a traffic circle? Crosswalks?

  • 69150 Old Forsyth Rd Macon, Georgia - Macon-Bibb County
    The street sign "Old Forsyth Rd" needs to be relocated to the north of Old Forsyth Rd since DOT has re-aligned the street per Paul Hownoski in Engineering
