2100 Ridge Road Raleigh, NC - Glenwood
My daughter walks to and from Lacy Elementary every day in her wheelchair from our house at 2100 Ridge Road. She has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as Brittle Bones, which means her bones break very easily. There are several places along that walk (on the southern or even numbered side of Ridge) where the earth on one or both of the sidewalk edges is dangerously low and could cause her wheelchair to tip over if her wheel goes off the edge. This is a potentially fatal hazard for her. She is in first grade and will be using this sidewalk for the next 8 years (through middle school). I would love to get some help to fix the areas that are hazardous. Would it be possible to meet with someone to look at this with me? If not, I have written down the addresses of most of the areas. The area of most concern is from the intersection of Lake Boone Trail and Ridge to 1900 Ridge. This section of sidewalk is narrower due to the bushes on the southern side encroaching on the sidewalk and then a 2" plus drop off on the other side. We had a scary close call there this week, which finally motivated me to write to you.
The other areas that I have noted were at 1908 Ridge, 1920 Ridge, 1924 Ridge, and 2000 Ridge.
Could you please look at the curb access on both sides of Lake Boone trail? As we cross and get on and off the curb you have to go down towards the line of traffic due to the angle of the curb cuts.
Please feel free to contact me if you need further information or guidance. Thank yo uso much for helping us with this.

Brownleigh Drive And Glenwood Ave Raleigh, NC - Northwest
The entry into Brownleigh Business Park onto Brownleigh Drive from Glenwood is very dangerous. The crossover for west bound traffic is mis-located 50' too far east for this turn and makes a west-bound turn very dangerous. An east-bound turn is lacking a de-acceleration (from 45 mph) exit lane - also very dangerous. Persons wanting to go into the business park must go up to Ebenezer Church Road exit and enter the park from the back entrance. This is unknown to many visitors and very inconvenient to workers in the business park.
Rowan St And Six Forks Raleigh, NC - Six Forks Corridor
A left turn light is needed when turning onto Six Forks from Rowan Street by St. Timothy's School. This is especially needed during school arrival and dismissal. The cars turing left onto Six Forks from St. Timothy's School and the cars turning left onto Six Forks from Carroll Middle School have trouble safely turning. Please fix this before there is a severe accident and a child from one of the schools is hurt.
817 Northbrook Drive Raleigh, NC 27609, USA - Six Forks
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.
5300-5398 Lead Mine Road Raleigh, NC 27612, USA - Raleigh Council District A
Litter has been an issue along Lead Mine between Town and Country Rd and Millbrook. DOT or city (whomever manages) roadside landscape maintenance either rund trash over or kicks it further to the side. Please have someone come out and pick up
Inbound Wade Avenue - Glenwood
Something has got to be done about cars trying to make left hand turns onto side streets along inbound Wade avenue. The backups they are causing with the cars coming over the hills in the area at high speeds is incredibly dangerous and causing major issues at rush hour. Left turns are not possible at these times but people continue to try as oppose to using the signals at Dixie and Brooks. Im guessing small median strips at these areas to prevent this will be the onlty solution but it should be considered.
825 Northbrook Drive Raleigh, NC - Six Forks
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.
9101 Leesville Rd Raleigh, NC 27613, USA - Northwest
A stop light or reduced speed limit is needed on Leesville Road at/near Pinecrest Point Shopping Center--between the shopping center and Westgate Road. There are many accidents or near accidents as people exceed the 45 minute speed limit through this area, which has a lot of businesses (where cars stop to turn.) It is also very difficult to make a left turn from Fairbanks onto Leesville due to heavy traffic. Either a light or a reduced speed limit could address this issue. Thank you.
