Cranston to get traffic lights at the intersection of Cranston Ave at Cranarch Rd/Cranberry Rd

After many discussions with Roads it has been determined that this intersection is warranted for traffic signals and is estimated to be installed in early 2013.

There have been requests to our office for an interim solution of implementing a temporary 4 way stop and this suggestion was submitted into the roads department.  Upon their investigation, it has been determined that the length of time in which people would need to wait to get through the intersection would be too long, in addition it is not recommended to install stop controls on multi-lane approaches (more than 2 lanes), which exists in this case.

In understanding the community concern over safety at this intersection, I will continue to monitor the installation timing in hopes that it will be initiated sooner rather than later.
