Stop! That Sign is Here To Stay (at Least for Now)
Several temporary stop signs were installed at the start of the Main Street Makeover; which ones should remain?
Part of University Drive in downtown Rochester closed temporarily on Wednesday as workers painted a bright white "stop" at the intersection of Water Street.
A temporary four-way stop at University and Water was installed at the start of the Main Street Makeover earlier this year; this week, city leaders said the four-way stop will stay until they can gather feedback in post-Makeover times about its usefulness.
"We are observing it now without construction to see if we want to propose to keep it permanent," said City Manager Jaymes Vettraino.
Four-way stops at Pine and Fourth streets and Pine and Third streets, as well as a three-way stop at Diversion and South streets, are also going to stay for awhile.
"We would be happy for feedback," Vettraino said.
Should the signs stay?
