Safety study results in intersection upgrades

BROOKFIELD — Following a safety study of the Addison Road and Brookfield Avenue intersection, the Trumbull County Engineer’s Office will make improvements there.

The county paid 10 percent of the $32,000 cost for the study, with a grant covering the rest. To reduce the number of crashes at that intersection, the engineer’s office will install LED stop signs and add signage to the area.

The three-way stop, according to Trustee Ron Haun, is confusing and causes a lot of property damage.

According to Gary Shaffer, deputy county engineer, the county has begun discussions to find grants to pay for the additional signage. Shaffer said if the county recieves a grant, then the signage could be installed by the end of summer.
