Residents of the Violetville community have expressed concerns about the intersection at Clarenell & Haverhill Roads and speeding.  Speeding through the community has become a regular occurrence, which has increased the need for speed deterrents especially on Joh, Coolidge and Pine Heights Avenues. 

Currently, only Haverhill Road is divided by stop signs, which has caused confusion because most intersections in the community are guided by 4 stop signs.  There have been several accidents, near misses at the intersection and damage to parked cars from hit and runs.  The intersection is only one block away from Violetville Elementary/Middle School #226 and frequently used by children walking to school.  Several residents have already submitted reports on 311 and the Department of Transportation has conducted a traffic study, but to no avail.  To truly recognize the dangers of the situation, one must live near the intersection or use it on a regular basis.  Residents of Violetville see traffic issues daily.

Areas of concern:

Haverhill & Clarenell (recent accident) Stop signs have been installed but need lines.

Need Review for whether we need clearer lines or stop signs at the corner of Coolidge and Joh Ave.

Traffic Background: Cars frequently cut through community from Wilkens to Benson or to avoid the intersection at Caton & Wilkens. Violetville is also a shortcut to access the businesses along Benson and Joh Ave.  We get semi-trucks that get stuck in the community frequently.  Mostly on Coolidge, Haverhill and Greenvale.

Sincerely,

Concerned Residents of Violetville
