City decides against new stop sign

Lebanon — A three-way stop will not be coming to Elizaville Road and Ulen Drive and Grant Street after a committee formed to look into the possibility decided against it.

The committee was Street Superintendent Larry Lee, Lebanon Police Chief Sam Myers and Board of Works member Steve Large. Lee told the Board of Works at Monday’s meeting they had a traffic counter at the intersection from June 7 to 12, and the numbers didn’t make him think a three-way stop was necessary at this time. That could change once school starts back up in the fall.

“I’m sure the numbers will be a bit higher once school starts, and I’m sure we can do this again then,” Lee said. “But this time, we felt like there was no need for a three-way stop there.”

The fire and police departments thought the three-way stop would actually create more problems, like traffic back-up, Lee said.

Per Lee’s request, the board took no action.
