HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – If you drive on the north side of Howland, a new traffic light has been installed, hoping to alleviate some major back-ups during rush hour.

The intersection of Howland-Wilson Road and East Market Street now has a traffic light, something that officials say has been needed for a very long time.

Officials cut the ribbon on the signal this morning, celebrating its completion. The concept for the project dates back 10 years ago, with discussions for a light beginning in 2011.

The project cost about $400,000 dollars, with a majority of the money coming from the federal government.

Officials say the light is needed, since during peak hours, traffic was backing up on Howland-Wilson Road all the way to State Route 82.

Officials with the Trumbull County Engineer’s office estimate that nearly 20,000 vehicles pass through the intersection each day.
