Is the new turn lane on Hwy 501 dangerous?

Posted on May 12, 2015

A newer turn lane on Highway 501 that turns onto Gardner Lacy Road is being questioned by locals after many accidents have been occurring in the same area.

Those wrecks have caused injuries and backed up traffic.

The 3rd lane becomes a turn lane and then ends. There is signage warning that the lane will be ending however accidents keep occurring.

If you are driving in that area, be aware of signage and traffic. Paying attention to your surroundings will reduce your risk of having an accident!
