Sheridan Springs will have traffic signals

December 16, 2010
The Edwards Boulevard extension north has been open since October, but one more piece remains to put the finishing touches on it. In time for summer, traffic lights and a reworked intersection at Sheridan Springs Road and Interchange North will be installed to improve traffic flow and safety in the area. On Monday night, the City Council voted to spend more than $282,000 for the work and another $20,000 for project engineering, which will widen Interchange North, revise the sidewalk and intersection and add traffic signals at the location.

Merryn's story is about sexual abuse, a topic most people don't want to discuss.
