The intersection where Lime Kiln Road turns into Airport Parkway is a busy one, with a lane for drivers to turn left onto Ethan Allen Parkway.

Margaret Bass, who travels through the intersection several times a week, says the lack of signs and pavement markings for the turning lane make her uncomfortable while she drives through.

“You have to know the road in order to feel safe and since it’s an airport parkway, I’m assuming there are a lot of people who travel this road who don’t know,” she said. “I don’t want to feel this nervous every time I come here. I’m scared.”

Rick Grzywna, who lives at the intersection, said he was planning to alert somebody to those very issues.

“I was thinking about it,” he said. “I was going to go over to the Town Garage and ask them and tell them what’s been going on and how there’s potential accidents. People not knowing what lane they’re in, there’s no markers. People blowing their horns because they’re going to hit each other.”

South Burlington Public Works Director Justin Rabidoux says his team is aware of the issue.

“In about a month we are repaving that stretch of road. The repaving will include new pavement markings. As a general rule we don’t repaint sections of road that are going to be repaved in the very near future,” he said in a statement.
