Two Towns Fight for Traffic Signal at Congested Intersection

sutterstock11Traffic signals are used to control the flow of traffic and provide a safe road experience for all. Decades of study have gone into road safety. But sometimes residents demand for signals that the state is unwilling to pay for.

At the border of Huntersville and Cornelius sits a private elementary school on Highway 73 and Norman Lane. Residents have been complaining that the traffic congestion at that intersection is far too high. They want a light installed there before more accidents happen. Eight have happened from 2010 through 2014, one of which was a fatality.

NCDOT agreed that the intersection is congested, but they disagreed that a traffic signal will solve the problem. However, they would install one if the two communities would agree to pay the $70,000 price tag for the light. Cornelius agreed, but Huntersville’s city council did not. Huntersville residents are now planning community meetings and have started a Facebook campaign to raise awareness and provide pressure on the town to pay for the light.

Sometimes a road is just plain dangerous, whether by poor design, bad repairs, or overcapacity. Communities can take steps like these to make their roads safer. Sadly, a major factor in getting governments to move on these issues is an increase in accidents. If you’ve been in a wreck in a place where there has been a history of accidents, speak with one of our attorneys. Auger & Auger is ready to help you.
