Pottsboro requests new traffic lights from TXDOT

By  | 

POTTSBORO, TX -- The city of Pottsboro has sent TXDOT a request for traffic lights at a busy and dangerous intersection.

Mayor Frank Budra says TXDOT has started their study on the Highway 289, FM 120 intersection by putting in speed strips on the road.

City officials approved a proposal for stop lights at that intersection earlier this month, because they say flashing beacons, stop signs and rumble strips did little to stop accidents.

Budra says it may take up to 3 months for TXDOT to release its findings.
