A flashing light board at the intersection of Church Street and S. Madison Avenue by the Monroe Town Green warns of a change in traffic patterns on June 1. Monroe City administrator said traffic light will go away and be replaced by a four-way stop on that day.
“That intersection will become a four-way stop as authorized by the City Council last year. We are taking down that signal as part of an overall electric project where we will be undergrounding some of the lines around that intersection and around the future Downtown Green,” Propes said. “As with the McDaniel/Breedlove signal that is now in flash mode, the Church/S. Madison signal’s mechanicals are essentially at end of life and have taken a beating over the past couple of years as cars have smashed the control panel and support poles several times.”
Propes confirmed that the pattern change is permanent.
“Of course, we will monitor traffic with an eye towards any future pattern or intersection improvements that may need to be implemented to ensure safety and efficiency,” he said.
