Just in time for the Dedication of the Beacon Municipal Complex, the City has installed a four-way stop at the intersection of Trinity and Electric Avenue. With the increased car traffic, number of walkers and bicyclists, it will be a much safer place with the addition of the stops.

Please be cautious in the area as drivers, cyclists and pedestrians adjust to the new traffic flow.

 

 

STOP! Plese don't roll through the stop sign. This intersection will be  busy over the summer months.
