Christina Benfield PearsonTraffic has become a major problem. The near misses are daily near the old Sonic location as well as entrance/exit of Brookhollow as folks try to get between 3rd to 5th St. It's troubling that housing is being constantly added without regard to road congestion. At the least we need some streetlights added to help get folks to their location safely. This traffic issue is hurting the quality of life in Mebane.

John DodsonSeveral students walk to Eastern Alamance. A bike/pedestrian lane would aid in safety and possibly encourage those forms of transportation for a healthy lifestyle change. This additional lane could also become extra street parking that doesn't block Mebane Rogers Rd. on big game nights.

If you think it is dangerous now, once the 4 lane bypass entersection is built it will be even harder. However, this will add a stoplight so hopefully that will help slow people down.

Downtown Mebane residents need a grocery store ( not a chain) and possibly the reintroduction of a train station at some point. The development of Ruffin St would help with parking. A pedestrian bridge over the tracks would make easier access to downtown for the residents on the.

My main concern is as a pedestrian. Having safe crossings and walkways and more isolation from vehicular traffic.

My secondary concern is for Mebane to become more cycling friendly for both kids and adults. 5th and 3rd Streets and Hwy 70 all need better facilities for cyclists.

Make Mebane a walkable city! Put a pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks. That could be built to be an attraction for the city. All it takes is a little engineering imagination. While making wider roads where the traffic volume is high, please do not encourage urban sprawl to spread things out. Cary is the poster child of how not to make roads, especially all of those cul-de-sacs.

I walk often with my school-age children on Mebane'S wonderful sidewalks near downtown. We have problems with safe crossings to South Mebane Elementary at Third and Roosevelt, and with all crossings from south of the train tracks into downtown. These could be fixed by building better pedestrian crossings.

Roosevelt St should be widened. It has a lot of school traffic (South Elementary) and is not much wider than a one-way street. There are other narrow streets that get "through" traffic and should be evaluated.

Lorraine Perillo WertsSidewalks on both sides of third Street extension instead of sidewalks that just end in the middle of nowhere. Bike lanes in town would also be a great idea. In certain neighborhoods along London Lane and Emerson people park on both sides of the street causing unsafe conditions: alternate side of the stree parking might aleviate that.

Stephen VarghaI have lived in downtown Mebane for 18 months to see a desperate need for sidewalks, crosswalks, and crosswalk signals. Biking on South Fifth Street is extremely risky.

Lorraine Perillo Werts9 years here and am sad about all the growth with not enough thought given to infrastructure and schools. Growth that is too fast is just as bad as no growth. I do not want to live in a Wake County type scenario.
