Posted: Updated:
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -

Mayor David on Wednesday announced stops signs have been added to Grand Boulevard at the intersection of Crestmont Road, creating an all-way stop.

“After careful study and input from Grand Boulevard residents, the City has moved forward with installation of an all-way stop to better control traffic at this high volume intersection,” said Mayor David.

“We’ll continue to work with residents, the Binghamton Metropolitan Transportation Study (BMTS) and West Side Councilwoman Sophia Resciniti on long-term safety improvements on Grand Boulevard.”

The stop sign installation follows other safety improvements in the corridor, including installation of oversized stop signs, ladder-style high visibility crosswalks and boxed parking lines for on-street parking.

More than 5,600 vehicles per day drive on Grand Boulevard through the Crestmont Road intersection.

In a five-year period, a total of 16 accidents took place at that intersection.

 

The change in traffic control was approved at the Binghamton Traffic Board’s Jan. 9 meeting.
