TAKE TO TASK

Item: Stone Mountain (DeKalb)

As we start the new year, we heard about an issue that is a familiar one to many of our readers.

Larry Charles of Stone Mountain writes “this speed limit sign has been broken for over a year”. He said it’s located at the intersection of Post Road Pass and Lost Creek Circle about 30 feet down on Lost Creek Circle.

We sent the issue to DeKalb County and will keep you updated.

A reader is hopeful something can be done about the lane lines on Spring Street as you head into Atlanta.

“Particularly crossing over 10th street headed toward Publix, drivers are on their own figuring how to maintain their lanes. I realize there is significant construction going on in the area. (I) can only hope relining Spring Street is in the plans,” the reader wrote.

We sent the item to the city and will keep you updated.

Update: Decatur (DeKalb)

In December, we told you about Renee Edwards’ concern over potholes in DeKalb County

“I am writing because complaining to or reporting to DeKalb county seems to do no good. Right now, at the composing of this email there are eight open potholes on Clairmont Circle in Decatur.

Edwards said she has lived on this street for 26 years, and has seen the street become more and more of a cut through street.

“The whole street is ‘alligatored,’ the county’s own word to describe a street that is cracked and or broken. There are places where due to tree roots the street is buckling. But far and away the issue is pot holes. One pothole in front of my neighbors house had to be filled six times.”

DeKalb County said the DeKalb County Roads and Drainage Department will repair the potholes on Clairmont Circle within two weeks (weather permitting).

Days on list: 23
