BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – One of Boardman’s most dangerous intersections will soon be a safer place to get through.
Traffic signals are now up at the intersection of South Avenue and McClurg Road. They went up Wednesday, and Mahoning County Engineer Pat Ginnetti says they should be on in the next few days.
Signs will be posted warning motorists of the new lights.
It was six years ago that Boardman officials started the process of getting the signals. The total cost was $230,000, most of which was paid for by a state grant.
Right now, the intersection only has stop signs for motorists pulling out onto South. The new system will include turn arrows for those trying to turn left onto McClurg.
