Hi, Good morning.

I would like to bring this to the attention of the party responsible. The traffic light is blocked by the black box/wires recently installed. Depending on the height of your car and how far you are from the intersection, it blocks a different light! It’s the corner on Hope rd.

Thank you!

Response from Mayor Coles:

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This is a county light and we have reported the issue to them and asked that it be corrected as soon as possible.

    Same issue at Cedarbridge and NH. Coming toward town on CB.

  • Anon says:


    Once the county is at it can they mark the street so that cars driving south on hope chapel making a left into the eastbound lanes of county line can make a left turn into the left lane. While cars going north on hope and making a right turn onto county line (eastbound lanes) turn into the right lane. The law requires cars to turn into the closest lane to them which would allow both of the above mentioned cars to go at the same time. But many cars that plan to make a left on Kent make a right turn from hope chapel into the left lane of county line rd which besides for this being dangerous and causing many near misses is illegal.

    Thank you

    Response to comment number two: It’s those vehicles that are making improper turns that should have their tires flattened.

      Do you happen to know the person who put a few hundred nails on the street?
