Residents Request Traffic Review
At Thursday's village board meeting, area residents collectively urged trustees to recommend that the Village Traffic Commission further probe the Franklin Avenue/Fourth Street intersection, particularly in light of a Nov. 5 car accident that claimed the life of a 10-year-old fifth-grader at St. Joseph's. While some admit installing a traffic signal might not be the solution, all feel the area bears further scrutiny.
