KINGS MOUNTAIN, NC (WBTV) - We're told the intersection at Margrace Road at the Kings Mountain Boulevard bridge that crosses train tracks has seen quite a few accidents.
It's a wide intersection.
You can't see that as well though as you approach from the west along Margrace Road. So the state installed rumble strips, a painted warning in the roadway, and signs indicating a stop was ahead.
Still, it's not enough say some, including Jeff Baumgardner who lives nearby. Baumgardner has been living in the area for about a year and says he's seen numerous wrecks at the intersection. He says it's dangerous and thinks a caution light would help make the intersection safer.
Many drivers are concerned about seeing oncoming traffic once you pull up to the intersection. Many pull into the intersection beyond the stop sign to get a look.
And because the intersection is so wide many drivers are concerned about getting across without getting hit by fast moving traffic.
They'd like to see a traffic signal installed here like the one that's at the intersection just across the bridge.
But state traffic engineers say traffic volume along Margrace Road isn't enough to warrant a traffic signal.
So can anything be done?
We contacted the State Department of Transportation. We were told that funding has been requested to construct traffic islands off the side streets, to add more stop signs with flashing lights, and to eventually lower the speed limit from 55 to 45.
DOT says the changes will be underway soon, but there is not a set timeline. Large projects such as this one can take time to complete.
Of course, we'll keep you updated on the progress.
