The problem (s) with North Central Expressway
Back in 1991 I remember city officials sinking a shovel into the ground at Walnut Hill and North Central and we all thought, “Oh boy, here we go. A decade of construction on I-75.”
But I think things have gotten worse since they finished contruction. The problem: The drivers.
Several nights a week I take a short segment of North Central from Park Lane to I-635. I would hazard a guess, that 80% of the time there is at least one accident in that four mile span. Easily!
Last night there were three separate accidents. It took 20 minutes to go that short distance.
Shouldn’t we be using those nifty big signs over the freeway to say: “Twelve accidents this week alone on this stretch of highway. Don’t be number 13.” Or, “Here comes Royal and Forest. Time to put down the cell phone!”
