New traffic lights to be activated
The traffic light at the intersection in front of the Big Store is soon to be an active red light/green light. The signal has been a flashing light since Hurricane Ike. Officials believed there wasn’t enough traffic flow to warrant a red light, until now. So, starting September 9th, the lights will be active. Please take caution and mind the traffic signals posted.
