About Roads and Road Safety Issues in the Village

If you would like to have a copy of the slides used at the March 18, 2015 FHA Open Board Meeting Program, which was focused on Selective Safety Matters: 15/501 Signal Light & Village Roads and The Residential KNOX-BOX┬«CLICK HERE. If you wish to read the committee’s entire unabridged (eleven page) Roads and Road Safety Issues in Fearrington Village Report, CLICK HERE. 

Questions addressed include: How often have you wondered about the operation of the traffic signal at the intersections of 15/501, Village Way, and Morris Road. For example, why do we almost always see the flashing yellow left turn arrow? Why have we never seen, or have only rarely seen, a solid green left turn arrow, and what determines when we do see it anyway? How safe is that traffic signal; how many accidents have occurred there? What risks and safety provisions do we need to recognize are involved in navigating this intersection?

How many roads and streets are in Fearrington Village? Which are owned and maintained by the state and which are the responsibility of the current six service groups in the village? Since the village-wide speed limit is 25mph, what do we do to try to calm speeds in the village and what other measures might we be able to use? What safety principles should walkers and drivers follow on our roads?
