C–Dot engineers are now hoping a new traffic signal will be the answer to the deadly intersection.
Since 2004, the intersection of 23 Road and Highway 6 & 50 has been the site of fifteen accidents, four of them causing injury, and one of them, fatal.
Officials with C–Dot say the $841,000 project includes a traffic signal, acceleration/deceleration lanes, and a concrete center median.
The improvements are largely funded by C–Dot.
The city is paying about $100,000 and is in charge of the signal itself as well as future maintenance.
C-Dot engineers estimate the project will be finished sometime around the third week of July.
