Hi, for a while now my mom and I have had to drive on Forest Avenue heading north towards Gourmet Glatt Plaza. But the intersection of Forest Avenue and County Line Road is badly designed and just plain dangerous. The road is wide enough for about 3 cars to squeeze in side by side but there are no lane markers so people just line up wherever they want. This sometimes causes cars in two separate “lanes” to both go forward and try to fit in a single lane road which causes some close calls. Just in the past 4 days I’ve had 2 situations where I had to stop because the person next to me was also going forward, and they were aggressively driving and tried to get in the single lane before me and almost caused a crash. Please take a look at that intersection in general because it can get pretty bad heading south on it as well.
Response from Mayor Coles:
We have asked the county to look into improvements at this intersection. I have a meeting scheduled with them in the near future at which we will discuss needed improvements in town & get an idea of their proposed schedule for enacting them. I will bring this up with them in person.
