Description

Just to document this: in addition to the below, I will note that there was what appears to be a serious accident yesterday at the intersection of Crestridge and Woodmont. Someone pulling out of the neighborhood, turning left on Woodmont, was hit broadside by a westbound car on Woodmont. I don't know if anyone was hurt, but it looked bad.

All residents living north of Woodmont on Springbrook Drive, Crestridge Drive, Pleasant Valley Rd., or Woodhaven Rd. must exit the neighborhood onto Woodmont (either heading east or west) in order to go anywhere. Otherwise, they cannot leave their neighborhood. There are two intersections allowing an exit from the neighborhood, Springbrook Drive & Woodmont Blvd., as well as Crestridge Drive & Woodmont Blvd. Both intersections have limited vision due to elevation changes in Woodmont (i.e., oncoming cars are difficult to see because they are coming over a hill). Technically, the speed limit on Woodmont around both intersections is 25 mph. However, most cars are traveling closer to 40 or 50 mph when they travel that stretch of Woodmont. At least one of those intersections needs to be fitted with a traffic light or a flashing yellow at the least, in order to provide residents of that neighborhood north of Woodmont a safe exit. Unfortunately, I am afraid it is only a matter of time before there is a very serious accident.
