  • This is a copy of a letter I sent to the Morgan County Commissioners in May with no response from them. The public needs to be aware of the problem:
    I am writing about my concern about a very dangerous intersection in Morgan County and I urge you to do something before someone is injured. The intersection is Red Arrow Road and Jade Road on the eastern part of the county. Traveling westbound on Red Arrow Road and turning left onto Jade Road is very dangerous because there is no way possible to see a vehicle coming head on at you. There are no traffic control devices in place.
    I urge you to go take a look at it and negotiate the corner yourself feeling how unsafe it is. A yield sign could be placed on Red Arrow Road for eastbound traffic or a mirror for westbound so traffic may be seen. Or get the property owner on the North side of the road to clear some trees/brush to make it visible.
    If something is not done there will be a serious crash there and someone will be hurt or killed making the county responsible and liable. If I have an accident there I know who I will be looking to for answers.
