The East End/Valley Street Neighborhood Association in Asheville, NC requests implementation of a new traffic signal at a neighborhood intersection. The location of the proposed traffic signal is at the intersection of South Charlotte Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive in the City of Asheville.


The intersection of South Charlotte Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive is a high traffic area with a residential street connecting to a high speed state road. City of Asheville traffic engineers have performed a detailed study of the area and determined that a traffic signal is warranted based on traffic flow, accident history, and vehicle delay from the neighborhood entrance on Martin Luther King, Jr Drive. A pedestrian crosswalk and signal is also necessary to provide a safe and walkable path across the high trafficked South Charlotte Street.


The members of the East End/Valley Street Neighborhood Association are interested in improving the safety of the area and look forward to determining the best possible traffic control methods. With ever-increasing traffic on South Charlotte Street and with new housing construction being planned in our neighborhood, these safety issues will only get worse with time. We respectfully urge your prompt attention to this matter and request that the NCDOT and City of Asheville refer to the City of Asheville traffic study and perform any additional studies for a traffic signal at this intersection.
