Rickie Williams cites two issues facing Columbia, KY
Writer cites two dangers on Jamestown Street, one of which might cause death or worse.
By Rickie Williams writes:
First Issue: I am sure it was with the best of intentions a few years ago that the trees, I think redbuds, were planted along Jamestown Street on the edge of the road from Bank of Columbia toward the ParkWay. However, pulling out of places for example like Bank of Columbia and Long John Silvers drive-thru lane is down right dangerous. One can not see traffic coming from toward the Parkway due to the trees without sticking the nose of your vehicle out in the road. These trees need some pruning from the bottom up.
Second Issue: I am sure it was with the best of intentions (this sounds familiar) when a few weeks ago the rough spot in front of the Columbia church of Christ was repaired with a small repaving job. About a year or so ago, for reasons unknown to mankind, a drainage grate was installed within the traffic lane. I will wholeheartedly admit that all of the area "surrounding" the said drainage grate is now very smooth. However, if anyone riding a motorcycle or a scooter happens to hit that drainage grate now, they are probably going to wreck...maybe even die or worse! If the grate is hit by most any normal vehicle, the drop off is deep enough to knock a vehicle's front end out of alignment. This too needs to be fixed.
Thanks for the service you provide this community and hopefully, these issues will be heard by the ears that need to hear it. -RICKIE WILLIAMSRickie Williams --Rickie Williams
