Street Squad -- Fitzhugh Avenue intersection

Posted: Updated:

An increase in crashes at a confusing East Dallas intersection has neighbors looking for help.

It's north of downtown, just off of Central Expressway where Fitzhugh intersects with two other streets.

"I have two documented cases that happened in two days last week," said Brian Payson. Payson is talking about crashes. He lives at the convergence of N. Fitzhugh Avenue, Bennett Avenue and Allcot Street in old East Dallas.

Cynthia Orocco has also had a business nearby for the last three years and agrees it's unsafe.

"Actually a car almost went inside out store," she said. "It was right here in the parking lot."

"What is the problem?" asked FOX 4's James Rose.

"They have to have better traffic signs here, yeah," said Orocco.

One of the intersecting roads is a two-way, another is a two-way and they all come together at one way. The problem is, there's not a lot of signs to tell drivers which way is the right way.

"There is no street paint for the fork," said Payson. "It's all faded away and it's just become a real issue and somebody is going to get killed."

Officials with the City of Dallas Traffic Department immediately responded to a call from the Street Squad, checked it out and said the street marking would repainted as soon as weather permits.
