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.”
