Chester Council Works On Getting Traffic Lights Fixed

Posted: Updated:

Chester City Council is doing their best to get the traffic moving as smoothly and safely as possible.

The traffic light at the intersection of Carolina Avenue and Third street has been blinking for weeks and the lack of school crossing signals has been creating problems for the city.

Council authorized the purchase of new parts for signals and the school crossing signs such as wiring, a timer, and light bulbs, just earlier this week and hope to get everything fixed by next week.


"The city is just going to do what they can; not replace, just repair, and see if we can't let motorist be aware of the school crossing at both ends pf town," says Mike Dotson, Chester Councilman Third Ward.

The problems stem from the mother board needing to be repaired and also weather tends to have an effect.

The West Virginia Traffic Engineering Division will send someone to repair the light at the intersection at Carolina and Third. Dotson hopes to have that running properly in the next few weeks.
