Take to task for Jan. 2

New item-Atlanta

A reader is concerned over tiny signs at a busy intersection.

“These new signs at the intersection of Freedom Parkway and Boulevard are extremely small. I took this picture three cars from the light. I’m assuming they mistakenly put street signs up instead of intersection signs which are much bigger. Otherwise, this is not the items to shrink in order to save money. How will you know where you are until you’re in the wrong lane at the light?” the reader asked.

We sent the item to the city and will keep you updated if the signs get super-sized.

Fixed! Atlanta

In mid-December, a reader pointed out an error on one of the city’s street signs.

“Someone printed the Crestridge Drive NE sign incorrectly with NW. When they came to correct it instead of gluing the NE over the NW they glued it over the DR portion of the sign,” wrote the reader.

We learned that it has been fixed by the city. Additionally, city officials ask readers to call the 311 customer service line or visit ATL311.com to submit service related requests

New item-DeKalb County

Rachel Schonberger wants something done about Fairoaks Road in DeKalb County.

“Fairoaks Road from Oak Grove Road to LaVista Road has been in disrepair for at least five years. DeKalb County paved half of it when the potholes became very dangerous. But the other half of the road remains in terrible shape, with the road bed again becoming hazardous,” she wrote.

Schonberger said she was told by a county commissioner and DeKalb County professionals that the road would be repaired in three to six months.

“But they didn’t tell us which three to six months and that was at least two to three years ago,” she added.

We sent the item to the county and got a quick response from the county.

The Fair Oaks project is in the process of being rebid in its entirety. The work is planned to be awarded and completed during 2017. In addition, a community meeting has been scheduled for 6:30 – 8 p.m. Jan. 5 at the Oak Grove United Methodist Church, 1722 Oak Grove Road, Decatur, said the county’s public information officer Elise Roberts.
