Let's talk traffic

Posted June 24, 2008

Do you have a gripe about a road?  Do you have a suggestion for the DOT?  How do you think the Triangle's transportation system should look in 20 years?

We're talking all things traffic on "The Daily Commute," our new group on GOLO.

I'ts a place for you to talk about anything related to traffic.  It's also a place where you can find news and notes about your commute, including construction alerts, details about future projects and anything else that might affect your trip.

Do join us!

    I ride in a carpool everyday from Benson in Johnston County and have for almost 15 years. We take I-40 West everyday. We always notice a slow down around the new I-70 bypass emptying onto I-40 West everyday. Hwy 42 and I-70 empty onto I-40 West too close together. The speed limit is 70 and we normally do 5 mph or less. We can't wait until I-40 is widened and we would love to have a carpool lane.

    I-40 between Hwy 55 in Durham and Hwy 42 in Clayton should have been made 8 lanes wide. Traffic is horrible and probably will get worse. Trying to get to the beach on Friday afternoons is a joke...takes at least 1/2 hour more to stop and roll for 15 miles.
