During the regular meeting of the Sulphur Springs City Council Tuesday night, the council voted to request that TXDOT conduct a study for a signal light at Highway 19 and FM 2285. Wednesday morning, KSST News spoke with City Manager Marc Maxwell regarding the study.
A fatality accident (see story here) prompted the city council to seek a study that would lead to a signal light where flashing lights are currently. The amount of traffic, five lanes of traffic, and other adversarial issues create an environment for accidents to occur. Maxwell stated when he went through the intersection recently, he looked three or four times to be sure he could cross.
