On the week of December 5th, stop signs were temporarily installed on South Fletcher Road at Winn Road. The stops signs were installed with the intention of improving safety for the snow clearing crews, as there were concerns with how steep and slippery Winn Road can be. Although well intentioned, the stop signs were installed without proper communication and planning, and the signs were taken down later that week. To address the safety concern raised by the crew, flaggers will set up at the intersection of South Fletcher Road and Winn Road during road salting and plowing for the rest of the winter. Please proceed with caution at this intersection, and as always avoid travelling during poor driving conditions whenever possible.
