LetterToTheEditor West Turkey Creek Road traffic concerns reader




Dear Editor:



Our back yard faces the walking trail, so we get a first-hand look at traffic on Turkey Creek Road. This road is heavily traveled by vehicles, jogger and cyclists.

It runs parallel to the walking trail which has heavy pedestrian traffic. The road itself is extremely dangerous with its narrow lanes and no shoulder. Cars that meet in the curves with a jogger in one lane have nowhere to go. Cyclists get honks and yells when traffic slows behind them. Speeding is routine.

Last month a car lost control, flipped over, and came to rest a few feet from the walking trail.

Last year a car lost control and hit the Anchor Park sign. The driver was killed. Two years ago a vehicle lost control, hit a brick mailbox, and came up over the walking trail a few feet from its west end, leaving oil and debris on the grass and trail. What can be done to make the west end of Turkey Creek Road safe?



Lois Burris
