Flashing lights appoved for CWB/Greensburg ST crossing
Rep. Carney received confirmation this week. Installation follows site visit with District Engineer Neil Shoemaker, Rep. Carney, CJE Ann Melton, Columbia Mayor Pat Bell, Columbia Police Sheriff Ralph Curry, and Chief Mark Harris.
By Ed Waggener
Representative Bam Carney has confirmed with Kentucky Highway Department District 8 District Engineer Neil Shoemaker, Somerset, KY, that flashing lights will be installed, maybe as early as this week, at stop signs north and south at the Greensburg ST/Greensburg Road crossing at the Columbia Western Bypass.
"I called him Thursday," Rep. Carney said, "and he reported that Frankfort has given the situation a high priority, that the money had been allocated, and the lights have been ordered and will be put up as soon as possible."
Carney, CJE Ann Melton, Columbia Mayor Pat Bell, Columbia Police Sheriff Ralph Curry, and Chief Mark Harris visited the site with the District Engineer earlier to get recommendations on how to reduce or eliminate the incidence of traffic accidents.
"Mr. Shoemaker told me that if the flashing lights and the rumble strips already in place don't do the job," Rep. Carney said, "the state will consider installing a traffic light at there." He added, "He said that the state will continue to monitor the situation."
