City seeking to improve seven 70S intersections
A grant is being sought to include a crosswalk at the intersection of North Chancery and Highway 70S Bypass. It is considered the No. 1 accident location in the county. In August, a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle while she was attempting to cross.
McMinnville is seeking to improve the seven intersections on Highway 70S and considering a measure to hire a company to negotiate with the state to get the work done. “This is a proposed agreement between the city and Griggs & Maloney Inc.,” said McMinnville Public Works assistant director Brad Hennessee. “It would authorize them to be a liaison for the project, which is a multi-year TDOT transportation block grant for signalization improvements for the intersections on 70S Bypass.”The agreement was submitted to the city Streets and Sanitation Committee.
