View Larger Map

The right shoulder (southeast corner of Rand and Waterman) is in poor condition. Drivers at this side of Rand Road on Waterman are at a disadvantage compared to drivers on Waterman on the north side of Rand Road.

Drivers at Rand and Waterman face a difficult turn from northbound Waterman to southeastbound Rand Road. Rand Road is often heavily congested, so driver’s trying to enter Rand Road often become impatient. Southbound Waterman drivers have a nice broad shoulder to turn right to northwestbound Rand Road, but left turn Waterman drivers often become impatient to go southeastbound on Rand Road. Northbound Waterman drivers have a more difficult time with traction because of the poor right shoulder, which is rutted and eroded. Southbound Waterman drivers can become frustrated with the extra time and care required by the northbound Waterman drivers.

Also northwestbound drivers on Rand Road road often cut the corner on a left turn to southbound Waterman — often coming south in the oncoming northbound lane of Waterman.

Recommendation: The southeast right-turn shoulder at Rand Road and Waterman should be made broad and paved so that drivers can start with a better turning angle and avoid eroded ruts that develop on the existing soft shoulder. The drivers will also then have better clearance to be out of the way of left turn drivers from northwestbound Rand Road to southbound Waterman.

Note: The intersection nearby at Rand and Camp McDonald may someday become a full intersection with Oakton reaching straight east to meet Camp McDonald at Rand Road.
