Full stop intersection at Main and Pioneer is active

As of Oct. 6, the intersection of Pioneer Avenue and Main Street is a four-way full stop intersection. The new stoplight is not yet connected to power, so it remains dark, but Swanson General Contractors owner Rob Swanson, whose company put in the light, wants to emphasize that that doesn’t mean it can be ignored. There are stop signs at each corner and legally, drivers from every direction must come to a full stop before continuing through the intersection. Swanson says that he hopes the light will be powered by next week. In the meantime, he reminds people to drive safely.
