HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Our first issue this week is a busy intersection, just east of Research Park Boulevard in Huntsville. It's at Premier Drive and Bradford Drive.
One driver, commenting on See, Click, Fix said there are just too many near misses there, especially during rush hour. He cites four major problems. One o them is drivers going fast coming off Research Park to go east on Bradford. Another is traffic from Premier having to cross five lanes in 600 feet to get to the Research Park north entrance.
He suggests eliminating the left turn from Premier to Bradford and making it a right turn only. Huntsville traffic engineers are now checking the intersection to see if they need to make changes. We'll let you know what they find.
The other issue's at Highway 72 and Jeff Road. The driver commenting on See, Click, Fix said traffic backs up for about a mile, sometimes as far as Wall Triana during the morning rush, 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.
He recommended increasing the time on the signal going eastbound. City of Huntsville engineers will now take a closer look at the cycle lengths to see if they need to be adjusted.
