A busy and sometimes dangerous intersection in Thief River Falls is getting a long awaited stop light.

The city has struggled to get the stoplight at the intersection on highway 32 because it is a state highway. Dangerous and congested are words that have been used to describe the Thief River Falls intersection at Greenwood Street and State Highway 32 and is crossed by thousands of people each day, most who work at the nearby Arctic Cat and DigiKey businesses.

The governor was very adamant about getting this project done Even joking at one point that if the state doesn't move ahead with the project quickly he would start the project himself. They hope to have the signal up and working by next August.
