Escambia County Makes Safety Improvements On State Line Road

September 24, 2018

Escambia County has made safety improvements on State Line Road in Century.

Rows of reflectors were added in addition to rumble strips to warn drivers as they approach a 90-degree curve adjacent to the Highway 29 overpass into Alabama. The curve has been the location of several accidents over the past several years.

    This section of road has not changed in about 4 decades but now we need safety improvements to help people avoid driving into the side of the overpass. I am all for improving road safety. But lets address the real problems like driving under the influence of alcohol, crack, medications, maryjane, and the greatest distraction of all the CELL PHONES that folks just can not put down while driving !!!!!

    The rumble strips work ok when you are going toward Hwy 29 on State Line Road…even though “humps” might work better. My problem is as I approach the 90 degree curve the folks coming from Hwy 29 on State Line Road are already going so fast they cross over into my lane. Maybe rumble strips in both directions would be better.
