HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - We start this week with a problem that some drivers are running into in Madison. It's at the intersection of Nance Road and Highway 72. One driver posted on See, Click, Fix that if you're trying to make the turn from Nance to eastbound Highway 72, you don't have enough time to make it through the intersection because the eastbound Highway 72 traffic is already backed up into the intersection.
We found that even when there isn't a lot of traffic there, the sensor's very sensitive. The light will change quickly on Nance if there's a slight break in the traffic flow. It's a problem that's apparently been reported before.
Huntsville traffic engineers say they'll take a look at it to see if they need to make any changes. Let me know what you see there.
The other road issue we looked into was on Old Railroad Bed Road at Highway 72. Someone wrote that the southbound lane curb line is painted too far out in the traffic lane and drivers think they're breaking the law by not getting over to the edge of the road.
He also said that could cause some problems if other drivers can't get into the left turn lane.
We checked it out and found that the lane widens so there's room for drivers who want to turn right onto 72. It didn't seem like it was causing any problems.
Still, Huntsville traffic engineers will take a closer look at the issue. We'll let you know what they decide.
