Q. What is the latest on installation of a traffic signal or improvements at the dangerous intersection of Green Meadows Drive and Market Street? This intersection is becoming extremely dangerous with all the traffic entering and leaving Dutch Square and trying to merge into the center lane of Market. Why can’t something be done to improve this situation like limiting left turns or installing a light? Near-misses occur every day at this location.

A. Katherine Hite, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3 traffic engineer, said that she was unable to find any previous studies or history on the intersection.

“We have started our review of this intersection and hope to have it completed by the end of July. If it is determined that this signal is warranted, a funding source will need to be identified before we can move forward with design and installation,” Hite said.

    According to MyReporter from December 2009, the Market Street corridor study recommended a signal to be installed at this location and the DOT response was that it was being considered. Why did the DOT say they were unable to find any information or studies regarding this location? Someone is not doing their homework again at the DOT and they are just giving another vague reply. This intersection is a death trap during business hours at Dutch Square and they need to do something about it or make the businesses in Dutch Square pay for improvements since they generate all the traffic. Maybe they can at least put up some posts and limit left turns like they did at Walgreens down the road to prevent accidents.
