  • Pothole Archived
    1125 Capital Boulevard Raleigh, North Carolina - Mordecai
    The access road from Fairview Ave to the Capital Blvd exit to Wade Ave has TWO groups of major pot holes. And that is actually after one solitary but very deep pot hole closer to Bickett Blvd (it currently has a traffic cone in it - only halfway visible!). The whole access road really needs to be repaved.
  • 1220–1418 Brookside Dr Raleigh 27604, United States - East Raleigh
    On Brookside Drive in front of the Conn Elementary School construction zone, there are two very large, deep holes in the road. These are clearly man made holes, construction related. There were no cones, no warning sign, no covers put over these holes. I hit them going 35mph (the posted speed limit) at 9:45pm on Sunday October 13th - it was very dark and had been raining, making visibility worse. I have a bulge in my front passenger side tire because of the negligence of the construction company that did not cover or put warning cones out. When we returned to the scene to take pictures, there was another lady there whose front passenger side tire was completely blown because she hit the same hole. She moved orange cones out into the holes to prevent other drivers from hitting it and causing damage to their tires/cars. I have her name and phone number to corroborate the story.
  • 109–111 S Person St Raleigh 27601, United States - Blount Corridor
    Cars parked in the travel lane of person street. Seems to happen every weekend.
  • 6120 Duraleigh Rd Raleigh, NC 27612, USA - Northwest
    There are three lanes on Duraleigh Rd just SW of the intersection at Glenwood Ave. but you can't tell because the lane lines have completely worn off of the roadway surface.
  • 1201 Wake Forest Road Raleigh, North Carolina - Blount Corridor
    At the corner of Poplar and Wake Forest Road, when attempting to turn on to Wake Forest Road from Poplar, there is ;limited visibility of south bound traffic due to shrubs on property at 1201 Wake Forest Road. This issue has been reported and eventually fixed in the past but shrubs are once again obscuring the view of oncoming traffic without pulling into the lanes of oncoming southbound Wake Forest Rd. traffic
  • Intersection Of Delta Lake And Commercial Raleigh, North Carolina - Northwest

    There is a semi truck parked in a no parking zone. There are "no truck parking" signs every 30-50ft.

    I called this in to police non-emergency twice last night due to the ongoing noise from either the truck idling or running its refrigeration.

    Upon calling the second time, dispatch state that the officer "attempted to call the trucking company". I requested another officer come out, as to try to wake the driver, or find another resolution.

    This morning, the truck is still there, after rumbling all night(and still rumbling as we speak). Moreover, I drove up to the truck this morning, and not only was it still there, right in front of the no parking sign, but there was not so much as a citation on the windshield. What is going to stop this driver from violating again and again, causing all-night noise? No ticket? Even when in clear violation and officers went out there?

    The truck is a red semi, one that I recognized from last year, as this truck did this regularly before the signs went up. Thank you to the City of Raleigh for answering the call and putting them in place. Despite the current issue, there has been a significant drop in truck parking since they were installed.

    The license plate on the front of the truck reads:


    Would someone from traffic and parking enforcement please leave a citation on the windshield of the truck? If there are no fines or repercussions, then there is essentially no deterrent from repeat violations.

    Thank you kindly for your time and any help you can provide on this matter.

  • 214 Ashe Avenue Raleigh North Carolina - Hillsborough
    It has been 47 days since I reported that the Ashe Avenue sidewalk over the railroad was almost obstructed by overgrown bushes. You have closed this issue twice without ever getting any action taken. The sidewalk is about 90% blocked by the overgrowth. It is difficult to cross this busy bridge without having to walk on the roadway.
  • Wake Forest Rd And Courtland Dr Raleigh, North Carolina - Blount Corridor
    Large over grown tree limbs and bushes have created limited visibility at the intersection making it impossible to see the street entrance when traveling south on Wake Forest Rd.
    Due to road construction on Courtland Dr. vehicles are traveling the opposite direction on a portion of Courtland avoid the detour even though it's clearly marked one way creating a head on collision scenario for vehicles legally turning onto Courtland Dr.
  • 1403 Wake Forest Rd Raleigh, NC 27604, USA - Blount Corridor
    this sign has been here quite a while laying off the side of the road. it seems a work crew forgot it. it is on the east side of Wake Forest by the crosswalk.
  • 709 Devereaux Raleigh - Glenwood-Brooklyn
    The crepe Myrtle trees in the tree box have not been trimmed at the base in quite some time. The sprouts stick 2-3 feet into the roadway as well as the sidewalk, causing difficulties getting through a narrow street, the sidewalk and parking.
  • Pothole Archived
    106 Ashe Avenue Raleigh North Carolina - Hillsborough
    I've been waiting for months for the pavement to be fixed on Ashe Ave on the southbound side where they are building the condos. It's feels dangerous driving on the southbound side because there is a big gap in the pavement between the curb and the rest of the road so people drive a bit over the yellow line and that makes a tight driving lane
  • 6305 Belle Crest Drive Raleigh, North Carolina - Raleigh Council District A

    This saga started 10/28. We discovered upon our return from a trip that extensive cable install/repair was underway involving ATT and Spectrum. Apparently a new install of Spectrum services had interrupted ATT cable service.

    USIC arrived eventual an re-mapped/labeled the routings. When we left for a short weekend trip on Saturday, the ATT cable had been repaired and reburied. There was no change in the Spectrum cable install.

    Upon our return this evening, we were advised by our neighbor that work had started sometime late Sunday morning. At the point that we began documenting the extreme safety hazard we has multiple deep trenches and one hole within the utility easement. These obstacles in addition to the large assumed Spectrum cable were not properly marked. By that I mean there was a warning on only the street side of the work site. The approaches to the trenches, hole, and cable were not provided with any warning to the home owner or residence of the property. No one was identified as "owner of the work in progress". The only indication of ownership of the work in progress was a damaged trailer licensed plate. All of the previously existing road debris had need "blown" onto the properly of the home owner.

    Documentation of the pre-existing and current existing status of the "work site" can be provided in JPG media format.
