Petition to New Jersey Department of Transportation NJDOT

NJDOT

This petition is important to anyone that would like to impove the traffic flow on Route 1 between Harrison St and Washington Road in West Windsor. People should also sign this petition for the safety and wellbeing of the general public. The NJDOT implemented the Jug-handle closures as a pilot program and the general consensus is that the pilot program has failed. If in conjunction with the jug-handle closures three other projects are completed it will be a more rational solution. Closing the Jug-handles in itself does not and will not solve the problem inherent to the Washington Rd – Route 1 area. The three other projects that must be completed are 1. Harrison St overpass 2. Vaughn Dr. connector in Princeton Junction 3. Widening of Alexander Road Bridge over the Stony Brook Canal. Implementing Jug-handle closures without coordinating other solutions has greatly diminished the quality of life for the residents of Penn’s Neck, increased travel time and cost for anyone needing to make a left turn to exit Route 1 at Washington Rd and Harrison St, forces drivers to cross four lanes of traffic and a solid white line to make a simple U-turn at Alexander Road putting them in danger, prevented emergency vehicles from being able to safely navigate the road way, has increased the number of accidents and incidents for the entire area and has not substantially increased the flow of traffic on Route 1 as intended. Please email and invite your friends and contacts to join us after signing this petition.

Make Lakesides Estates and Butler Road Safe-- Make Necessary Repairs

Lakeside Estates has a well-known, reported and documented safety issue that is not being resolved. Highway 31 near the entrance of the Lakeside Estates subdivision heavily floods. The flooding is severe and vehicles cannot safely pass to enter or exit the subdivision. The only other possible passage is Butler Road, which connects to Highway 31. However Butler Road is a small, gravel road. It has so many gigantic potholes, it is extremely unsafe. It is now a frequent occurrence that residents cannot safely leave their homes. Residents risk damage to their vehicles and selves. Plans, including traveling to work, are frequently derailed by the flooding. This is not only an inconvenience for the many residents who call Lakeside Estates and the surrounding areas home, it is potentially disastrous. In the event of an emergency, residents cannot quickly leave and emergency vehicles would likely have difficulty entering the area. This is an extremely unsafe situation. We deserve and demand a safe solution. We elected our representatives to listen to our concerns and attempt to resolve them. We pay our taxes and expect safe roads in return. This is a reasonable request. To resolve this issue, please do at least one of these things: Repair the potholes and pave Butler Road Repair the section of Highway 31 to prevent flooding Build a new access road  Either one of these reasonable solutions would resolve this dangerous issue. Please ensure this is resolved. Thank you for your prompt attention to this gravely serious matter.

227 Stamping Ground Road Kentucky

227 also known as Stamping Ground Road, in Scott County Kentucky, is a vicious road,for this community that travel it daily to Georgetown for work and, school. There are freight trucks and, farm machinery that travel up and down this road daily as well. There is no room for passing on this road that is bearly just over the size of 2 bicycle lanes. The curves in this road become life threatening, anytime weather adds to the hazards, that already present themselves. In one year and, a minute we lost 4 young people in just this one curve that sits in front of Duvall Station Road. The crosses are adding up all to quick in this curve. Before long we will have an entire grave yard at the end of it . I can not see so much loss, without it bringing about  change, for the future of this community to have a safer road to commute on and, give our kids a safer road to travel . The factors of people and speed, the condition of the road and, then you have weather conditions. We can't help but fear for their safety. 227 is the only road that connects these 2 communities unless, you drive across Georgetown to Long Lick. Then that defeats their bypass purpose for the schools and, traffic so there is only one answer being the only road, take out these 2 deadly curves make some pull offs for the farmers equipment so others can pass and, show us you care about our children and, this community's safety, as much as we do and, money should not come over the lives of about  643 people living in this community, that depend on traveling this road to Georgetown, for their education and, work. For their daily survival in this community . The Mayor of Stamping Ground really loves her community and works hard to keep her community safe and is always putting her community as her priority  as she works for better changes for her community and, is working on this road as well. So let's all help keep these kid's safer in this small family like place. By putting our voices together and, creating one so strong they can't be denied, of what they need, to keep their families safer. It would be worth it to see the accident rate go from 100% to 10%. The inspiration to make these changes come from the loss of Trevor Wade Spencer 22, Skylar Wade Spencer 3, Cory Wilcoxen 29 and, Paul Bubba Burton 23 and all the lives they touched in such a brief time of life and, I truly believe they are the angels of this change so please sign.
