Pardon our mess: Overgrowth blocking stop sign, five feet of road

WHERE: On Bransford Avenue, just west of the Holden Street intersection off Walton Way.



WHAT: Overgrown trees and brush have swallowed the street curb and now cover five feet of roadway. Neighborhood residents say the plant life has obscured the view of a nearby stop sign and turned the area into a popular dump site for litter, shopping carts and old tires.


WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: Unknown. Steve Cassell, the City of Augusta’s assistant director of traffic engineering, said Wednesday he plans to send a staff member to investigate the overgrowth and determine who is responsible.


ACTION PROMISED: If the overgrowth covers public right-of-way, traffic engineering staff will take care of the problem. If it’s on private property, the owner will be given notice and have 15 days to address the issue.
