7/11/21: THE TRAFFIC ‘SPOT’-FIXING EXPERIMENT CONTINUES

Traffic backed up on East Dogwood Trail, heading east to Duck Road, as early as noon yesterday, because of the chain barricades in the median. This photo was submitted by a reader who lives on Sea Oats Lane, which is the extension of Sea Oats Trail on the south side of East Dogwood Trail. The side street to the right in the photo is Sea Oats Lane. The Beacon received email reports from residents throughout the day about traffic backups on Hickory Trail, Hillcrest Drive, and Wax Myrtle Trail, despite the barricades.

Dear Beacon Readers: Please post your comments about this weekend’s cut-thru traffic and the effectiveness of the mitigation measures that the Town implemented on this blog entry. Thank you!

  1. Another no left turn Saturday with signs, barricades and a police car with lights flashing and yet tourists are still making left turns onto South Dogwood even though in some cases they are holding up traffic in the passing lane. Is it possible to get live cops in the police cars?

  2. The “chains” are made of plastic. One good yank, and the entrance is breached.
