HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - We start this week with a request for speed bumps on some of the side streets off Governors Drive, like Stanford Drive, in Huntsville. A woman, commenting on See, Click, Fix said that children can't play outside safely because of all the cars flying up and down the side roads, especially since the construction towards Huntsville High School.
City traffic engineers took a look at those side streets lately and decided they don't qualify for speed bumps or other traffic calming measures. To qualify, those streets would have to be local and not a collector street, have 500 cars a day, and 85 percent of the cars would have to drive at least 35 mph. They didn't find that to be the case.
We also looked into more traffic light issues. There was one reported at the intersection of Echols Avenue and Adams Street. The person who commented on our site said that the light goes green on Echols when it changes for Adams, and that it didn't do that before the road construction there.
The City of Huntsville has sent that issue to traffic engineers. They will check it again and see if they need to make some changes.
The other issue was reported at Oster and University. Reportedly, it takes several minutes for the light to change, sitting at Oster. We checked it out and didn't see anything out of the ordinary for a University side street. Still, Huntsville traffic engineers said they'll check it out.
