2 VotesFix it! Voted!Westinghouse Blvd. & I-77; Newtown Road & Highway 521Good Evening:
If possible, could you please look into improvements to make two separate Charlotte-area intersections safer? They both have the same problem: one more traffic light/signal than number of lanes.
Issue 1: The light at the intersection of Westinghouse Blvd and the exit ramp from I-77.
- When traveling on I-485 from Pineville, NC towards the I-77 South/North interchange, take the I-77 South option
- Next, take the first exit onto Westinghouse Blvd.
- At this intersection, there are 3 traffic lanes and 4 lights
- The far left lane is a left-only lane
- The far right lane is a right-only lane
- Is the middle lane a left option, straight option and/or right option? I am under the perception that it is a straight/right or right only lane and have witnessed many near miss collisions and incidents of potential road rage as a result of the confusing signs and signals at this intersection from people attempting to turn left onto Westinghouse.
- I would like to see clearer directions and/or signals at this intersection. Many big trucks use this light and exit ramp and attempt to crowd out the smaller vehicles as part of the confusion.
Issue 2: The light at the intersection of Highway 521 and Newtown Road in Indianland, SC. This is just a few miles below the NC/SC state line, south of Ballantyne and used by many commuting to/from South Carolina into Charlotte, as well as those in South Charlotte seeking cheaper gas prices. - When exiting from the Aldi parking lot, there are two traffic lanes and three lights.
- According to the faded pavement markings, the left lane is a left-straight option and the right lane is a right-only option. However, I have seen many near miss collisions and incidents of road rage as a result of the confusing signs and signals at this intersection from people attempting to go straight onto Newtown Road from both lanes at the same time.
- I would like to see clearer directions and/or signals at this intersection.
Anything you can do to call attention to these safety hazards and/or a potential fix is very appreciated.
1321 Charlottetowne Avenue Charlotte, North CarolinaThis intersection of Charlottetowne Ave and E 7th St was paved within the past year....but already has an unavoidable pothole right where you cross 7th St to go onto Independence Blvd! It has been there for months now.
State Road 2074 & Interstate 85 Charlotte, NC 28216, USAThis long-Pot-hole has never been repaired for past 6 years that Ive been in Charlotte, NC. It is getting deeper and broader. It Gives a bone rattling, car-banging-misalignment for sure because of high speed comming off I85S and than while your turning right to stay on the off ramp.

Intersection Of Graham St. And Sugar Creek Rd. Charlotte, NC 28204, USAStreet at the intersection has many pot holes as well as uneven surface. At this intersection, many cars may end up with front end damage and accidents may occur because of the ruffness of the street. This intersection is also a very high traffic area.
Hamilton Road Charlotte, NCThere is a dip in the road at intersection of Hamilton Road and Hwy 160. I have reported it to DOT but it hasn't been smoothed out. You have to slow down or the front of you car will scrape.
6000 Providence Rd Charlotte, North CarolinaContractors boring under providence rd for new sewer dot had one lane closed all day initially trying to figure out what happened surveyors ave been seen numerous times over the past month. The separation has been patched with asphalt but the gap continues to grow. Somebody has placed large orange signs indicating a bump.
7305 Bluff Wood Cove Charlotte, NC 28212, USAI have reported this drain pipe that sits half way my back yard to the city because when it rains my whole back yard becomes flooded. The water that runs off the street after it rains comes through that pipe and because the pipe stops halfway my back yard it floods along with a rising Campbell Creek. I have been told by the city this does not qualify as a priority. The pipe in my yard is about 20 yards from where the creek comes across my back yard.
