Making history on Wellington's Highway 6

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Just in time to regulate Thanksgiving traffic along Wellington's Main Street, the town's first and only traffic semaphore is going up at the corner of 100 East and Main streets. It has been a goal of Mayor Ben Blackburn since he took his oath of office in January 2010. Blackburn and the Wellington City Council have long been concerned about pedestrian safety, especially children who have to cross Main Street - the busy US Highway 6 - to get to and from school or the city's parks. The signals won't run on a timer. Instead, they'll be triggered either by pedestrians wanting to cross or by cross traffic approaching the intersection on 100 East. Wellington Elementary students will have to cross Main Street at the signal instead of the current crossing at 200 West, the mayor added.
