Dunkirk makes busy intersection a four-way stop

DUNKIRK – Police Chief David Ortolano announced Thursday that the intersection of Talcott Street and Lincoln Avenue  has been changed to a four-way stop.

The change is a result of a traffic study done by police department officers after the previous stop signs were removed during the construction of the Millennium Parkway. 

“This is a very heavily populated residential area, especially with children walking to school,” Ortolano said. “The addition of a four-way stop at this intersection will enhance the safety of pedestrians, giving them a safe place to cross Talcott Street.”

He added, “We want to advise motorists to please pay attention to the new stop signs when traveling in this area.”
