Update: Atlanta (Fulton)

Last week, we told you about Joseph Palladi’s concern over a trashy road.

“On the northbound on ramp to Ga. 400 at the Glenridge Perimeter Connector, there are three debris piles stacked up atop and behind the guardrail. They have been there before December of 2016. I read in an article that GDOT cuts the grass on the interstates every month, which is an improvement of past policies of mowing it once in the spring, the summer and at the end of fall. So why haven’t these piles been picked up?” he asked.

DOT responded this week and said they would go out and assess the situation.

Freda Kempson wants something done about a traffic light that is proving pesky for commuters.

“The traffic light at the intersection of Cobb Parkway and Creekside Village Drive needs to be adjusted to blinking yellow to allow traffic turning left onto Creekside when it’s clear. It’s ridiculous to sit there waiting for the green arrow when there’s absolutely no traffic on Cobb Parkway” she wrote.

We sent the information to the county and will keep you updated.
