One might think it’s simple to get an old bridge replaced and a road widened, bringing it up to par with the rest of Tryon road just to the west. But nothing is easy in South West Raleigh. Neglected for our brethren to the North and downtown, from goat trails on Lake Wheeler Road to abandoned infrastructure at Renaissance Park, our roadway priorities our toyed with on a long list of projects that are years away from completion. But some of the folks are working diligently in the community to bring awareness about the lack of coordination and funding to complete Tryon Road.
We have this 17 page accident report to share. It tells the story of 56 crashes, 1 fatal, from 06/01/2004 to 06/01/2009. The report is on Tryon Road [State Road (SR) 1370] between Fairway Drive & Junction Blvd.
There appears to be a consistent pattern with drivers running off the road in both curves. If you’re familiar with the roadway, we’re talking about the curves to the east of the Tryon Road rail bridge near the RGA Golf Course.
Visit. Sign. Tell a friend.
We need your help in getting more signatures on this petition and raising awareness to get this road completed. A bake sale won’t do it. We need real dollars from the North Caroline Legislature to make this happen and more attention to this matter.
