Install traffic light on Brier Creek Parkway & Arnold Palmer Drive

    1. Petition by

      Brier Creek Elementary PTA

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

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.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This is a dangerous intersection and I am concerned about my safety and that of my children. Due to its proximity to the express way, cars are driving fast on Brier Creek Parkway, which makes it difficult and dangerous, to come from Vogel Street to turn left on to Brier Creek. There are also issues with visibility and congestion as there cars trying to cross from the country club or from the parkway to get to the elementary school. There have been numerous accidents at this location.

      I don't want to see a fatal accident before a light is installed, especially at a busy intersection next to a school.

      I use this intersection multiple times a day because I live off of Arnold Palmer Drive. This intersection is dangerous for drivers and for families crossing to get to the elementary school and community center.

      Cars fly down the road and it's impossible to for a pedestrian to cross. I've got a child and have to run across with my stroller every time I cross to visit family on the other side
