Grand Forks Intersection Could Soon Be Getting Safer

A crash-prone crossing in Grand Forks may be one step closer to getting a traffic signal after tonight's city council meeting. City officials are looking into putting in a temporary signal at South Washington Street and 40th Avenue South until a permanent one could be put in place in 2014.

A crash-prone crossing in Grand Forks may be one step closer to getting a traffic signal after tonight's city council meeting.

City officials are looking into putting in a temporary signal at South Washington Street and 40th Avenue South until a permanent one could be put in place in 2014. This is after several accidents have occurred in that area. Some officials are worried about increased traffic in that area since Choice Health and Fitness opened. The temporary stoplights would cost around $145,000 and the permanent about $600,000. This would be partially federally funded, costing the city as little as $75,000 in the end.
