    You knew where the home was when you purchased it and moved there. So shut the hell up and deal with it until other entrance options are created.

    Bridges need to be built. The train sits for hrs sometimes off Mary Taylor Rd! Definitely not good for the residential areas with no other way out!

    There are many traffic concerns that need to be addressed in Trussville. Especially as they add more and more businesses.

    Not being ugly. I lived in Trussville for over 25 years. How long have you been there. I watched them build that development. If you bought there you k ew what you were buying. Now you want to pressure the city to solve the problem that you should have seen before moved there.

    The speed limit in that area was dropped from 55 to 40 for this reason. The speed limit is still 55 down the street where three residential neighborhoods are located. So you could be trying to exit your neighborhood with cars ramping up from 35 to 55 instead…

    I lived there for 25 years!!!!!!!! Every city has traffic issues. But you think because you live in Trussville the city needs to fix all your problems. Give me a break!

    I totally feel their pain. We have hundreds of homes by camp Coleman with only one way in and out. Yet our tax dollars were used to buy the old chicken plant so that the road could be opened as an alternative route in the event of the train having to stop… So far that road has yet to remain open. It’s been opened a handful of times by Trussville police to allow pass through access. We shouldn’t be having to call Trussville police to Open a gate for us that shouldn’t be locked in the first place. Trussville pd has better things they need to focus their resources on besides playing gate keeper. We bought and paid for the road, it’s times to open it before there is a loss of life because an emergency vehicle can’t get in here due to the train. It’s time for some bridges and over passes. It’s not the trains fault, it’s not the home owners fault. This is part of progress. The city has certainly benefited from all the building permits sold to build these homes as well as the tax revenue that they generate. This comes with those money’s, it’s the cost of doing business, safely and smart.

    Kenny Aldridge I have been in Trussville since 1976. Regardless something needs to be done and not just for that neighborhood!

    Don’t be in a hurry to call ALDOT. If they work on this problem in the same way they have jumped on the Civitan Park project they should have it taken care of by mid 2020.

    If you don’t like it move! That’s what I did. Best decision I ever made.

    I lived in Trussville for 20 years and the trains have always been a problem. Trains were there first and then the need to build more subdivisions for the many new people moving in. Only so much space to build on the opposite side of the tracks.

    Kenny Aldridge me too on Oak drive before the overpass.

    Agreed. On the other end of trussville, we dealt with accidents almost every day on deerfoot in the mornings for decades. Wasn’t until they built the new high school when they added traffic lights.

    So, progress isn’t happening quick enough so when they are working, he called to have them stop?!?

    Maybe you all need to move to Hoover!!!!!

    You are correct Marshall Akins.
    It’s ashamed how long it took our city to get the Veterans Memorial completed. I know our Cadets raised over 700.00 and donated to it. Our city should have paid every penny for a memorial.

    Everyone knows the traffic and train issues when they move here. Been here 40 years and have just adapted to it all.

    It’s poor planning on the engineers part. It happens in every city. Build build till the traffic comes to a stand still then try to fix it.

    Cheryl Spaulding McLelland hopefully a resolution will be soon.

    It is evident there is a problem and evident that someone is looking for some much needed attention. If “you” aka Kenny hate Trussville so bad, why are reading “The Trussville Tribune” post? Smh

    And the moral of the story is not to purchase a home in a development with only one entrance/exit where there is a train track. If you want to lay the blame, it goes to the developers and the folks who didn’t think ahead about this problem when they bought. Doesn’t matter what you were promised by the developer, city, or anyone else. Did you really believe everything they told you?

    I questioned the development of TS way back when it started before the recession. Stupid place to build tiny houses 10 feet apart from each other. I honestly don’t understand why anyone would buy there. Same with Brookes Crossings. What….3 whole houses backing up to the train track? Idiotic.
