Congratulations on the completion of the Hoyt King Speedway!
I now sit on my front porch and watch the cars wiz by at speeds of at least 60 mph since they lessened the approaching curve. This new road construction moved the road about 50 feet south of where it originally emptied out onto 81, at an embarrassing speed of 10 1/2 months of construction. Kudo's to the idiots who thought this was a good idea, I'm sure you could have found a better way to waste taxpayer money. They said the old road created to many accidents but I got news for you, the new road now allows minimal visibility of the oncoming traffic, in either direction, for exiting it onto 81. Now it needs a traffic light!!!!

As a daily Hoyt King Rd. user, I applaud the changes recently completed. Driving north on Hwy 81 and getting caught behind someonw waiting to turn left on to Hoyt King was a suicide mission before the change! People speeding over the crest of the hill could not see stopped cars in time to stop and there were numerous severe crashes as a result. Today, visibility is improved from every approach to that intersection and it is therefore far safer for everyone. That being said, most people exceed the speed limit on Hoyt King--partly because they just don't care and partly because the speed limit is inappropriately slow for that particular road.

DPagoldengirl has hit it on the head. Someone will be t-boned soon trying to get out of Austin Reynolds Rd. because of a speeder not having time to slow down. A red light would help on Hwy. 81, a three way stop could help the intersection at Austin Reynolds as well as slow the traffic down. If policing the road doesn't help, having that stop sign would at least create a pit stop on Hoyt King Rd. Speeday.

A red light at the Hwy. 81 intersection and a three way stop sign at the intersection of Austin Reynolds and Hoyt King Rd. would help.
