See, Click, Fix: Lights at Capshaw, dents at Rees

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The first issue's one that several people have agreed is a problem over the last 12 days - the need for a traffic light at the intersection of Balch and Capshaw roads.

One person who commented on the See, Click, Fix site said it's a dangerous corner, and she's seen a lot of accidents there. Right now, there's just a stop sign on Balch Road and nothing on Capshaw. There would have to be a traffic study to determine if a traffic light's warranted there.

But here's the issue with that. The north side of Capshaw Road is Madison County. The south side of Capshaw is Huntsville. So, a traffic light would have to be a joint effort between the two. Both have the information now. I'll keep checking to see who gets the traffic study going and what they find.

The other issue is one we've gotten used to seeing - cracks, dents and patches on a road. This time, it's Rees Avenue in Huntsville. The viewer who reported this says all you have to do is look at the patches in the middle of the road.

Crews have been there several times, filling in some of the dents in the road. The big problem's in the middle, where there's still a bit of a dent. It is a little rocky if you're headed down the hill.

Ideally, the people who live here would like to have the road re-paved... But again, there are a lot of roads that are in the same boat. We're forwarded all of this to public works crews.
