Petition for a Traffic Light at the intersection of Billy Howey Rd. & New Town Rd in Union County, NC
We petition the NC Department of Transportation to install a four-way traffic light at the intersection of SR 1315 (New Town Rd.) at SR1329 (Billy Howey Rd). This intersection is extremely dangerous and has a high crash frequency resulting in 39 accidents over the last five years alone not including non-reported accidents. This intersection continues to increase in use as the surrounding area has developed with new residential neighborhoods and a significant increase in population.
We would like safety improvements at this intersection and believe the addition of a traffic signal will reduce accidents and help assure the safety of our families in Union County. As concerned citizens, we urge you to sign this Petition to have a traffic light installed at this location to make travel through the intersection of Billy Howey Rd and New Town Rd as safe as possible. NCDOT and Union County need to make this a priority before anyone else is hurt or fatally injured.
