Umstead - Go Slow
- By: umstead advocates
- Target: All users and neighbors of Umstead State Park in Raleigh, NC
Paving of Reedy Creek and Trenton Roads has caused a significant
increase in traffic traveling at higher than appropriate speeds near the intersection of these roads at the entrance to Umstead. The result is a
very dangerous mix of fast-moving cars within two feet of pedestrians, walkers with dogs and strollers, joggers, and cyclists. Near hits are common with both people and park wildlife. The speed limits on Reedy Creek and Trenton Roads need to be significantly lowered and enforced and wider shoulders should be provided for pedestrians.
