Monica Beshara wants something done about some traffic signals.

“I am wondering if someone can help fix the timing with the traffic lights on Clifton Road. Particularly the lights at CDC Parkway where, at night, there is no traffic coming in or out, but the light stays green for an eternity, keeping through traffic stopped on Clifton,” she wrote.

She added the same thing happens at Gatewood Road and Clifton.

“It’s a construction site that gets a green light where people get old waiting for the light to change!”

Beshara said there is no pedestrian traffic, and both of these crossroads are construction sites.

“There is no reason for people to have to sit with their cars idling and their hair graying, waiting for these meaningless lights to change,” she added.

In April, we told you about Kim Woodland’s issue at 1224 Stillwood Drive.

“About three weeks to a month ago, a DeKalb road crew placed large metal plates over the holes. The plates are on a slope and have started to move as cars pass over them. They also make a terrible racket as cars drive over them,” she wrote.

We heard back from Woodland.

“I spoke to a supervisor on site who told me they discovered a bigger sewer/water line problem when they dug up the road the first time months ago. The supervisor said they would fix the bigger problem, which they did, and then pave the road, depending on the weather forecast. The road still hasn’t been paved, and the holes in the road are bigger than before, although they now aren’t covered by plates, so the gravel is being pushed and washed down the road,” she said.

We sent her issue back to DeKalb County and let you know when it’s fixed.
