North Adams City Council last week approved a stop sign at the busy intersection of East Main Street, Pleasant and Miner.  The new stop sign will be placed on the westbound lane of East Main Street according to an article posted on iBerkshire.com.

There are already stop signs on Miner and Pleasant streets. East Main has been the right of way and will continue to be so in the eastbound lane.

The council also approved reducing the speed limit on East Main Street to 25 mph with the exception of the school zone by Colegrove Park Elementary School which is set at 20 mph.

The traffic change had been recommended by the Public Safety Committee, which had met immediately prior to the City Council last Tuesday. The change has been under discussion for some time following an accident at the intersection in which a child was injured.
