[tabi] Re: Thomasville and Kerry Forest Parkway intersection

Hi Darla and All,
Basically, this is a huge, 4-way intersection with quite fast moving traffic. 
It does have some egress lanes and luckily, sidewalks along both sides of 
thomasville at least (not sure about Kerry Forest). It has a minimum of 4 lanes 
for the Kerry Forest portion and I'd guess probably 6 or so for Thomasville 
Road. The real need for audible ped signals at intersections such as this, as I 
see it is that it is so large and noisy that one can't accurately read the 
traffic to make a good safe judgment about when it is time to cross without a 
little help. Not sure that you'd want to cross it without some assistance or 
prior training. Hope this helps. Take care, Sila

  Wow, Chip I haven't attempted to cross there; might try it if we're out that 
way this weekend.

  Can you give me a verbal description of its shape and number of lanes, etc.?

    I don't know Darla if others will be happy or not for the audible signal at 
this intersection; Allison can't believe Mimi or anyone else is willing to try 
it!

    Dear Mimi and William,

    I am so proud TCB is listed in the Nova 2010 plan as serious contributors 
to make the routes and stops accessible.

    Good going to William, Sally and others who have been so thorough in 
putting forth our suggestions and ideas; thanks to the Lighthouse as well.

    I am sure others in your area, Mimi, will be happy for that audible signal, 
too.

    Darla

      I will see what I can do about an audible signal by your wall-Mart.

        Hi there atlas, it would improve living conditions to have a audible 
signal to go across Thomasville rd at Kerry 

        forest parkway  to go into Walmart and then make the return trip with 
audible signal to cross back over thonmasville going east over to kerryforest 

         /It would require 4 audible signals.

         

        Also a bus stop needs to be located at each roundabouts in kill earn 
estates.  Currently I walk two and a half miles to kerry park and Thomasville 
to take the bus to target.  The return bus could stop on Thomasville at kerry 
forest to discharge passengers to an audible signal to cross over,

         

        Need to make some type of transportation on an as-needed basis.

         

        Oh well.

        HI William.

         

        Does this group deal with all transportation in Leon county or just the 
fixed route system?

        In either case first of all we need night service which we haven't had 
for about 2 and a half years and there is no transportation to the airport on 
weekends.  If your inquiry deals with the non sponsored service then I have a 
lot to say and recommendations for fixing the problems.  At worse we should be 
able to have what we had prior to prioritization of non sponsored trips by the 
TD board.

          Greetings list,

           

          As you all know I am very committed to having as good a 
transportation system in Tallahassee as possible.  At a recent meeting I was 
asked to get input from my fellow disable listers:  what would be the 
suggestions you might have for an effective transportation system?  This is 
just one more opportunity to make your voice heard.  

           

          What is the Accessible Transportation Coalitions Initiative (ATCI)?

           

          ATCI is a one-year process designed to support systems change 
activities to improve accessible transportation options for people with 
disabilities 

           

          We can have a voice and it has been proven in the past that they do 
listen to us.

           

          I invite you to offer your suggestions and I will carry them to the 
table.
