I had a guy call me today upset about a street name. (Or lack there of). He was going into a commercial center that had a traffic light at it. To make a long story short he got into an accident and noticed that the entrance to the mall did not have a name. He contacted our traffic engineers ranting about safety. He then went to other commercial areas in the city and made note of all intersections that had traffic signals and no name. After looking at his list of “dangerous intersection” I noticed that they are all private streets in commercial areas.
I explained to him that in these cases the drives are private meaning that they are plated and not dedicated to the city. Therefore we cannot name it.
I WAS WONDERING THAT IF ANYONE WORKING IN DIFFERENT CITYS HAS EVER NAMED PRIVATE STREET IN A COMMERCIAL AREA?
IF YOU DO WHERE DO YOU STOP. IS IT JUST THE ENTERANCE OR CAN IT INCLUDE AN INTERIOR DRIVE BETWEEN A MAJOR TENNATE AND PAD SITES?
IF IT IS NAMED WHO OWNS AND MAINTAINS IT? THE CITY OR THE OWNER OF THE DEVELOPMENT?
ENQUIERING MINDS WANT TO KNOW!
