Wednesday meeting for proposed stop sign, not a big crowd

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - It was a small audience for Wednesday's public hearing about the proposed four-way stop at Woodrow Road and South University.

 County Commissioner Bill McCay says an engineering firm studied the intersection and suggested a four-way stop. Mccay says it may be inconvenient for some, but the study shows new stop signs are necessary for safety and overall traffic flow.

"It's just convenient to not have to stop at a stop sign, but we think back to 1585 and university, 1585 and Indiana Avenue, for years there were no stop signs at the intersections on 1585, but now there are. This part of the county is growing. We have growing pains. There are challenges we have to address." says McCay.

 DPS reports ten crashes at the intersection since 2006.
