Another traffic accident at the North Millgrove and Stage Roads intersection in Newstead has raised growing concern among area residents who are pushing for improvements.

The Town Board this week received 18 letters from residents that have been forwarded to the county.

Highway Superintendent Gary Fogal discussed the situation with Deputy County Public Works Commissioner David Comerford, who is in charge of highways, who noted that the county will cooperate "in any manner permitted by law."

Town officials said the intersection is dangerous and has a history of accidents.

Last year, an on-site inspection was conducted and some trees were removed to improve visibility at the site where an Akron woman was fatally injured.
