The sign warning you of the median was hit and damaged. It is lying in the median at the intersection of N. Hills and Millbrook. The U channel post has been sheared off and is broken, sticking up out of the ground.

This traffic light remains red for the north side of North Hills going towards Shelly when cars are waiting. The light will turn green for the other side but remain red if a car was not there a certain amount of time before the cycle began. It makes you pay your dues! If one side is green then both sides should be green. This light is not malfunctioning it just needs to be re-programmed so that both sides are green.
4351-105 Main At North Hills Street Six Forks And Dartmouth Raleigh, North Carolina - Six Forks Corridor
Light at Six Forks and Dartmouth is out of sync with light at Six Forks and Lassiter Mill. This morning the light at Six Forks and Lassiter Mill turned green while the light at Dartmouth stayed Red for Six forks so long that traffic was blocking the intersection at Lassiter Mill.

The new speed bumps on Northbrook Drive are too aggressive. The speed limit is 30 mph through that section (outside of school hours). The signage indicates these are 25mph bumps, however I have passed with three different cars and only feel like my property is safe from damage at a maximum of 19mph.
This is an excessive, imposing, and offensive traffic calming method, especially to neighbors who have to travel through this section multiple times per day. Speeds of 25-30 mph through these areas outside of school times are slow enough to give reasonably alert drivers and pedestrians ample time to respond to typical hazards.
Please modify these bumps so that the average, well-maintained car can navigate at the posted safe speed without damaging the driver's personal property.

Three speed hunps on Northbrook are too high, and were installed in violation of the City of Raleigh Neighborhood Traffic Management Program, section 4.3.2. The city's own traffic count was 4,120, so speed humps should never have been considered. These public nuisances should be removed immediately.
3128-3154 Anderson Drive Raleigh, NC 27609, USA - Six Forks
Since the Six Forks and Anderson intersection was foolishly redesigned, the wait for Anderson to turn onto Northbound Six Forks Road from 7:30-8:15 week days has become absurdly long! Traffic is backing up to Oxford making congestion around the school unnecessarily heavy and unsafe. Additionally, the redesign was so flawed that Anderson was not widened to permit two lanes of traffic that would enable those turning right (south) to easily pass the congestion.
211 Northbrook Dr Raleigh, NC - Six Forks Corridor
It would really help traffic flow during school hours if there were a right turn signal from Northbrook to Southbound Six Forks Road during the time that northbound Six Forks has a left turn arrow. There's a lot of traffic at that time turning right and technically we can't turn right on red during school hours, though many people do.
Glenwood At Five Points Raleigh, NC - Six Forks
The left turn arrow on Glenwood going toward town comes on when no traffic is present. This is the fourth time I have reported an issue with the lights at this intersection. The first two times the ticket was closed stating there was no problem. The third time a problem was detected and was supposed to be corrected. This is a problem because traffic coming from town on Glenwood has to sit idle when this happens.
411 East Six Forks Road Raleigh, NC 27609, USA - Six Forks
Issues with fuel trucks turning right onto Six Forks from Wake Forest. Recently I have noticed on multiple occasions semi trucks blocking the flow of traffic while trying to turn right onto Six Forks at the Wake Forest intersection (headed South). There is simply not enough room to make a right turn with a trailer attached. These trucks swing wide to the left and still need to come into both left-turning lanes of Wake Forest at the light. The cars on Wake Forest either have to back up if possible or the truck has to attempt to back up. All of this is going on while the lights are cycling and traffic is at a stand-still. So far the offenders I see are fuel trucks and they may be trying to get to the fuel stations on Six Forks at the Kroger shopping center. Has there been an issue with this before? It seems like recently it's been happening a lot and I wonder if its a new driver. Are there currently any rules about these large trucks using this intersection? It seems like they should exit off 440 at Six Forks and head South instead of exiting from Wake Forest and trying to squeeze through the intersection. Mostly just an inconvenience, but I am curious.

An infrastructure project on Drewry Lane has dragged on entirely too long. The only way around the street obstruction is a detour that re-routes traffic onto Six Forks Road at intersections without stoplights. An alternative might be Ramblewood, but Ramblewood is often down to one lane because of construction on a huge new development. The neighbors were told that the Drewry Lane project would be completed before the end of 2012. It is now February 4. If this project was undertaken by the city, it should be prioritized. If it is a project undertaken by a private contractor, it is time to impose penalties. There seems to be no activity there at all. When can we expect an update on the status and completion date? We are totally in the dark.

Atlantic Ave And E Six Forks Rd Raleigh, NC - Six Forks
Early in the morning (before 6 am) the traffic light at Atlantic and E Six Forks Rd stops traffic on southbound Atlantic even with no traffic on E Six Forks (usually there is none). It stays red for Atlantic a long time including giving a green arrow to the traffic (that is not there!) making a right turn from E Six Forks heading south.

Where North Hills Drive ends at Lead Mine Rd, there seems to be constant confusion and/or traffic flow issues related to how the lanes curve from North Hills Drive onto Lead Mine Road.
The striping on the road is a bit difficult to see, which seems to add some to the confusion of what lane the cars should be in during the left turn.
The right lane on North Hills Drive feeds the majority of lanes on lead Mine Rd, causing traffic to back up considerably within this lane. This then leads to the left North Hills Drive lane filling up mostly with traffic that either does not understand that they are not in the proper lane for where they are trying to get to, or with people that know that they are in the wrong lane, but would rather just cut across the other lane of traffic mid-turn than wait in the longer line of cars.
The left lane of North Hills Dr feeds into the left-most lane of Lead Mine Rd, which then becomes the middle left turn lane (lane 2). This lane turns onto east-bound Glenwood, and becomes the exit-only lane for the Inner Beltline.
The Right lane of North Hills Dr feeds into the right-most left turn lane of Lead Mine Rd (which becomes lane 3). This lane turns onto east-bound Glenwood and becomes the exit-only lane for the Outer Beltline.
What this means is that the left NHD lane feeds traffic to:
1. South-bound Lead mine to East-bound Glenwood.
2. South-bound Lead mine to East-bound Glenwood to Inner Beltline.
The right NHD lane feeds traffic to:
1. North-bound Lead Mine.
2. Straight across Lead Mine into complex.
3. South-bound Lead mine to East-bound Glenwood to Outer Beltline.
4. South-bound Lead mine across Glenwood (becomes Blue Ridge Rd).
5. South-bound Lead mine to West-bound Glenwood.
Giving the North Hills Dr lanes that turn onto Lead Mine Dr a wider radius turn and shifting the lanes that they feed into, over one lane to the right, seems as though it would greatly reduce confusion and traffic issues. The lanes would not take such a sharp left curve, allowing the confused drivers to more easily stay in the proper lane during the turn. It will also better distribute the traffic between the two North Hills Dr lanes, preventing one lane backing up and the other lane filling up with the impatient and reckless drivers.
The new lane destinations would also just make better sense. The left North Hills Dr lane feeds all traffic going left on Glenwood, including all Beltline traffic. The right North Hills Dr lane feeds all traffic for Lead Mine/Blue Ridge and traffic turning right on Glenwood.
If this just seems like a minor pet peeve, try this: drive down North Hills Drive with the intention of getting onto the Outer Beltline. This would be the right lane of North Hills Dr at Lead mine. See how many people cut across this lane mid-turn. I drive this route often, and I would estimate that I have a close-call with another car 9 out of 10 times.
Millbrook Rd And N Hills Dr Raleigh, NC - Six Forks
The vehicle detection system for the traffic light at North Hills and Millbrook does not detect motorcycles. Since this is a "smart" light, and does not go through normal timed cycles, it will not give a green light to that lane of traffic, even if the same lane in the opposite direction has been given a green light. The vehicle detection system also only seems to recognize (or not) the vehicle in the first spot. Therefore, if a motorcycle is in the first spot (or if a car has not pulled up far enough), the lane will not get a green light regardless of how many vehicles are waiting behind it.
1885-1899 N Hills Dr Raleigh, NC - Six Forks
Due to the fact that the curbs are not painted red, cars are able to park on the south side of North Hills right up to this entrance to the apartment complex. This creates a very dangerous situation where drivers exiting the complex are unable to see oncoming traffic from their left.

The iron manhole cover in the middle lane of the northbound traffic just north of Dartmouth Rd. on Six Forks Road is well below grade level. Repeated driving over this dip will eventually cause car damage to the suspension.

Traffic traveling south on Atlantic at the posted speed limit of 45MPH makes it unsafe and difficult for the 100 plus residents and numerous office employees to enter Atlantic traveling south. The view is hindered by the hilly topography as well.
Mellow Field Drive Raleigh, NC - Six Forks
A new apartment building has been built at the intersection of Six Forks Road and Mellow Field Drive (near intersection of Six Forks Road and Atlantic Ave.). Residents of the new apartment building (Manor Apartments) are parking along Mellow Field Drive. The way the building is designed, residents who park in the apartment's parking deck drive out behind the apartment building onto Mellow Field Drive. With people parking along Mellow Field, drivers along Mellow Field can not see cars coming out of the Manor Apartment driveway and also, drivers coming out of the apartment building driveway can't see drivers coming up the street. I recommend No Parking Signs along part of Mellow Field Drive so that drivers have easy view of the street and the driveway of the apartment building. I live in the area and have already experienced problems with people leaving the apartment driveway pulling out in front of oncoming traffic because they couldn't see traffic along Mellow Field Drive. I am happy to speak with anyone about this situation and hope it can be resolved soon before people are hurt in accidents.
Wake Forest Road Raleigh, NC - Six Forks
The Westbound Beltline Exit for Wake Forest Rd. was changed last year from 2 left/1 right turn lanes onto WF Rd to 2 right/1 left. Traffic backs up onto the beltline from the left turn lane, while right turns are never more than 6 cars, turning right all the time. Return to the 2 left/1 right scenario, to avoid backup for the entire exit.
501-800 Currituck Dr Raleigh, NC 27609, USA - Six Forks
The North Hills' SC Thurday night festivities brings many vehicles that park in the roadway and too close to the intersection on both sides of curritck. The nonadherance to parking and traffic rules is causing a very dangerous condition in that turning traffic from Lassiter Mill sometimes has to stop abruptly in the oncoming traffic due to the westbound lane of Currituck being blocked by improperly parked vehicles. Tonight 6/9/11, the cars were parked on both sides of Currituck for more than 2-1/2 blocks causing neighborhood traffic trying to return home from work to drive into the opposing lane to get by. Signs and Police presence are needed to keep this situation from causing a bad accident.
