Take to task for March 21

New item-Atlanta

Terry Moy hopes something can be done about a storm drain that is clogged and causes a safety hazard for drivers and pedestrians.

“Hoping you all can get us some help getting this cleaned/cleared/unclogged. The storm drains on both sides/corners on the east side of McLendon Avenue at Moreland Avenue have been full of mud for at least a year now. When it rains they aggravate flooding at the intersection, get pedestrians splashed and cause safety issues for driving. I think major work is needed and maybe why the city has avoided it,” he wrote.

We sent the information to the city and will let you know the outcome.

New item-DeKalb County

Barry Goodno is concerned about a rough road in DeKalb County and hopes some patching can be done quickly.

“Two asphalt road patches on Mercer University Drive (east of I-85N on the curve between I-85 and the fire station) are pushed up and creating a hazard because drivers enter the other lane to avoid the jolt when driving over them. It is important that both patches be re-done as soon as possible,” he wrote.

We forwarded the item to the county and let you know the outcome.

Robert McOsker hopes something can be done about pot holes in Tucker that are growing deeper by the day.

“Where Sims Court and Carson Valley Drive meet in Tucker, the school buses have been stopping there a few times a day for years. They back up to turn around, jolting the asphalt to where we now have two big areas that are torn up with pot holes. The pot holes are so big and deep that drivers have to drive around them to avoid them and I have seen some close calls where cars have nearly collided with traffic coming from the opposite direction,” McOsker wrote.

McOsker added his neighbor has called the county several times, but has not received a response and hopes that something can get accomplished. We sent the item to the county and will let you know when they are fixed.
