Traffic Control Changes at Main and Chestnut

In response to feedback from citizens and business owners, the City Manager has authorized the addition of traffic control devices at the intersection of Main Street and Chestnut Street. These traffic control devices will make the intersection an all-way stop. Starting Tuesday, September 6, the Public Works Department will add a stop sign and associated road markings to eastbound Main Street and northbound Chestnut Street. Additionally, a stop sign will be placed at the exit of the traffic circle that serves as the entrance to the parking lot near Black Dog Smoke & Ale. Directional signs will also be added to the traffic circle to indicate the appropriate direction of traffic flow. Increased traffic at the intersection of Main and Chestnut Streets had prompted citizens and business owners to ask the City to take action to improve vehicular and pedestrian safety at this location. The work is expected to be finished by Friday, September 9.
