Safer Intersection at Morrisville Pkwy/Carpenter Upchurch Road by GHHS and Carpenter ES
This petition supports improving the safety of the intersection at Morrisville Parkway/Carpenter Upchurch. It is north of Green Hope High School and west of Carpenter Elementary Schools by the railroad crossing. Your input is needed by April 19 to advocate for priority budgeting by Town Of Cary for this project.
The proposed improvement is removal of dividers so people could drive through the intersection via timed lights. The project would also involve new crosswalk, longer railroad crossing gate lengths, etc. I can't attach the draft drawing from Town of Cary on Project #ST1123, so put your email in comments and I'll send it directly to you if you want the details.. All proposed modifications are preliminary concepts used for discussion in light of documented safety concerns at this intersection.
As of now, if anyone leaves GHHS and wants to go north to 55/540, they have to go right onto the M. Parkway, do a u-turn and come back. Many other traffic patterns currently re-directed around those existing medians would also be improved with this proposed change.
Your voice is needed please by April 19 on this petition to get budgeting priority so it happens timely with CSX, NCDOT and other necessary approvals. Please do not email all the Council directly as this petition advocacy will be more effective as a whole in large numbers! Please put your thoughts in comments in this petition, if you desire. This petition's results will be presented to all TOC Council Members and Mayor.
