Traffic Commission sends recommendations to TxDOT for dangerous intersection

PARIS, TX -- Recommendations are being sent to Texas Department of Transportation for ways to improve a dangerous Paris intersection.

Paris Traffic Commission chairman Ken Kohls says the recommendations will include rumble strips on Loop 286 and LED lights on FM 1497 to help alert cars of the upcoming intersection.

Since 1995 the Loop 286 and FM 1497 intersection has seen nearly forty accidents and five fatalities since 2000, most recently claiming the life of Paris Paramedic Joe Howard.

The commission hopes to have a overpass built in the future.
