Joyce Coomer: Making Hwy 55 South and the Bypass safer
Joyce Coomer thinks rumble strips would be wise at intersection of South End Bypass & KY 55 South
By Joyce Coomer
I saw photo of several people at this intersection on ColumbiaMagazine a day or two ago. The cutline mentioned the numerous signs, and while there are several signs there, I haven't noticed them interfering with my visual area either when I'm on Highway 55 South or on the bypass.
There is a sign a few hundred feet before the intersection on the bypass indicating that there is a stop sign ahead. When you come up the slight rise there, you can see the intersection and the stop sign at the end of the bypass. I think rumble strips --and rumble strips that you would really notice, not some that are just barely noticeable, both on the bypass and on the road to the industrial park would be wise as people zip across this intersection as if there were no stop signs visible anywhere - as a little light green sedan did this morning - whomever was driving never bothered slowing when they approached the end of the bypass and the slight dip at the side of Highway 55 where the road to the industrial park (I'm going to have to find out the name of that road) connects to Highway 55 didn't slow them down any either.
Thankfully neither I nor the vehicle in front of me were close enough to the intersection for there to have been a wreck, but the next time . . . ????
