More than 20 Carrboro residents came out to Tuesday night’s Board of Aldermen meeting to voice concerns about one of the town’s most dangerous intersections.
At the meeting, the board received a crash analysis report from Town Transportation Planner Jeff Brubaker that revealed 20 reported crashes at the intersection of Jones Ferry and Davie Roads from November 2006 to October 2011.
The study was prompted by the high pedestrian and public-transit use of the intersection, as well as heavy commuter traffic.
“Nine thousand cars a day pass through this intersection,” Brubaker said.
The N.C. Department of Transportation and Triad Regional Traffic Engineers created a redevelopment plan to improve the safety of the intersection, but Brubaker said plans are still conceptual.
