Install traffic light on Brier Creek Parkway & Arnold Palmer Drive


The intersection of Brier Creek Pkwy and Arnold Palmer Drive is dangerous to vehicle and pedestrian traffic and denies residents a safe, walkable route to the adjacent year-round elementary school and community center. There are no traffic lights or crosswalks to aid navigation and the intersection is congested during rush hour traffic, creating a dangerous four way intersection. Since Brier Creek Parkway falls on the NC Department of Transportation State Highway System, we ask the NCDOT to install 4-way traffic lights and cross walks at the corner of Brier Creek Parkway and Arnold Palmer Drive.

Who Will Benefit?
. Hundreds of families live in the Brier Creek community. This stoplight will provide these residents with a safe route to walk or bike to the Brier Creek Elementary School (pop 800) and Community Center.
· Providing a safe pedestrian route to school will encourage & enable our community to get more physical activity, which also helps us reduce obesity & model healthier behaviors
· A safer intersection will prevent pedestrian and vehicular traffic crashes, which have been occurring with more frequency in recent months (2 in Jan/Feb)
· Our seniors and retirees will also benefit by being able to walk to and from the community center and Walgreens

Letter to
NCDOT
We respectfully ask that the NC DOT install a traffic light on Brier Creek Parkway at Arnold Palmer Drive in NW Raleigh to provide residents a safe walkable route to the adjacent year-round elementary school and community center.
