JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Teresa told First Coast News she wants a traffic light with a turn arrow at Firestone Road at 103rd Street out of safety concerns for area students.
FCN called the Florida Department of Transportation and a spokesperson said a light with an arrow would be too heavy for the current pole structure.
There is a plan to rebuild the signal with an arrow at that intersection and several blocks up the road. But, it will take about four years to start because FDOT has to buy land to be able to widen the lanes before the multi-million dollar project can begin.
Darlene said it isn't safe for her 97 year old father to drive and wants his license revoked. She said the state interviewed him in January and she's heard nothing. Department of Highway Safety spokeswoman told FCN that they can't talk specifics, but it would never take this long. The department will look through its records and contact the family.
Mary, who lives in a west side neighborhood off Blanding Boulevard sent the On Your Side team a very nice thank you note. The note thanks FCN for taking action for them. She and her neighbors were concerned about a sinkhole close to their homes. The On Your Side team took action and contacted the city. FCN went to the location and saw crews that were hard at work taking care of this sinkhole issue.
Remember a few weeks ago when Mark from St. Nicholas wondered what that mysterious fluorescent green liquid inside a hole and when it would be fixed?
JEA said it was a harmless die and that they'd fix it promptly and they did.
Donna is concerned about safety on the service road from Blanding Boulevard to the Beltway north and asked us if drivers can get on the Beltway sooner. FDOT tells FCN the answer to her question is "no."
However, the state agency is aware of concerns. FCN leaned that FDOT had already made the merge area longer for safer, smoother traffic.
