  • 120 S Wingate Street Wake Forest, NC - Wake Forest

    This section of Wingate Street which is located between North Avenue and Durham Road has multiple problems. First, it is a safety hazard because it is stretches through the middle of a college campus with a high volume of student traffic; established in 1834, the automobile traffic has long ago superceded the safety of students. Second, the road is long overdue for repaving; the cement pavement needs to be roughed and then given an asphalt surface. Third, the Double-Yellow (no passing) center lines are worn away; cars are constantly crossing over their designated lane into the on-coming traffic. Fourth, cars are parking on the east side of the road, but the parking spaces are not clearly marked, so cars are often poking out into the north bound lane of traffic. Fifth, the Speed Limit should be lowered to 15 MPH instead of the 25 MPH, because it runs through the middle of a college campus (very similar to a Mall Parking Lot). Sixth, during the Summer session, the YMCA is allowed to park a full-sized school bus in a circular area along the road, and this seriously obstructs the visibility of the YMCA youth and the college students, another serious safety issue.

    It is my opinion that this road needs to be re-engineered by the highway department (state, county, or local town) whoever is responsible, so that the safety of the YMCA youth and SEBTS college students becomes a top priority.

    I have lived in the Town of Wake Forest for 10 years. I drive through this section of road a minimum of 4 times a day. My familiarity makes me very aware of the hazard that is presented by this section of road.

    Thank you for your assistance with my request.

  • Vicious Dog Archived
    607 N Main St Wake Forest, NC 27587, USA - Wake Forest

    There is a vicious dog (black lab) on the 600 block of N. Main St. This dog's owners were asked to stop taking it to the town dog park and it has bitten one person already. The owner's are NOT careful to keep this dog confined or leashed, so Main St. walkers and neighbors should be warned.

    Very dangerous here with pedestrians. Cars do not yield to those on crosswalk.

  • 313 Yellow Poplar Ave. Wake Forest, NC - Wake Forest

    At least 8-10 times per day, U.S. Postal delivery vehicles, including a large box truck, use Yellow Poplar Ave., as a cut thru to Franklin St. A trail of postal vehicles leaves the post office in the morning and then return to the post office in the afternoon. This is a neighborhood with a 25 mph speed limit. These vehicles are exceeding the speed limit and should be using East Holding Ave., a main thoroughfare, to access Franklin St. when leaving and returning from their routes.

    3600 Rogers Road Wake Forest, NC 27587, USA - Wake Forest

    The light pattern is very confusing when on Rogers road going northbound. When lights turn green, the left hand lane to turn shows a yellow arrow. I often see people going as the light changes color, but oncoming traffic from the opposite direction can cause an accident. The left-hand lane should remain read for a few seconds and change after The main lights turn green, not at the same time.

    352 S Franklin St Wake Forest, NC 27587, USA - Wake Forest

    I seem to remember that the town paid quite a bit for the landscaping in the medians and round-a-bouts. These areas will have to now be maintained. The weeds have so taken over the liriope that it will be pulled out when the rye is pulled. I hope this maint. begins soon.

  • 904 Prairie Smoke St Wake Forest, NC - Wake Forest

    When we moved here in August, we found that the circular iron cover over the water meter was broken. It needs to be replaced. I reported this by phone a couple of months ago but no action has been taken.

    3904 Heritage View Trail Wake Forest, NC 27587, USA - Wake Forest

    Cars parked inside the roundabout and near the corner daily for bus stop pickup. There are a half dozen or more cars in and around the round-about several times each day as people congregate to pick up their kids from the bus stop. The intersection becomes so congested that I'm surprised the school bus can navigate it. No parking signs should be installed inside the round-about and within 50-100 feet of it.

  • Potholes Archived
    224 E. Holding Ave. Wake Forest, NC - Wake Forest

    One large pothole as you enter the post office's parking lot, and another huge pothole as you exit the post office's parking lot.
    8/4/2013
    FINALLY, in the last 24 hours the largest and deepest pothole (measuring 3ft x 4ft) has been filled with gravel and some cement. Next, I hope they plan to cover and smooth over this "patching" with asphalt. And the smaller pothole (24" x26") still has not been filled yet!!
