Sturgis traffic light to be replaced with stop signs

 

Sturgis city commissioners last week approved removing a traffic light at the intersection of North Centerville Road and West West Street.

The signal is to be replaced by stop signs.

Beginning in late June, the traffic light was converted to flashing red and yellow signals at the intersection. After a six-week trial period, evaluations concluded that the traffic volume does not warrant a traffic signal.

The intersection will be converted to a two-way stop. Signs will be placed on West Street, with additional warning signage telling drivers that cross traffic on Centerville Road does not stop.

The change will take effect when construction on North Centerville Road begins later this month.
