Why isn’t there a traffic light at Old Fayetteville Road where drivers leave North Brunswick High and Middle schools?

Ken Little

Q. North Brunswick High School and North Brunswick Middle School both now have more than 1,000 students each. Only two routes allow drivers to leave the schools, yet one of the directions (taking Old Fayetteville Road to Lanvale Road) does not have a stop light. Sometimes a policeman is at the intersection to direct traffic, but not always (probably less than 25 percent of the time). How can NCDOT justify this dangerous crossing for students, parents and buses not having a stop light? 

A. The state Department of Transportation agrees, but doesn’t have the money to install a stop light, said Robert Vause, Division 3 maintenance engineer of the DOT’s Division of Highways.

The DOT has previously reviewed the location “and determined that signal warrants were met,” he said.

“Unfortunately, there is not a funding source available for this new signal installation. We will continue working with other units within the Division so that when a funding source becomes available, the department could proceed with this installation,” Vause said.
