Turn signals have been installed on the north and southbound lanes at the intersection of South Chancery and Vervilla streets. “The intersection was originally designed without turn signals due to inadequate traffic count, but upgrades made over the years allowed for extra capacity to add the turn signals,” said McMinnville Public Works assistant director Brad Hennessee. Added to the intersection were two new five-head signals.Prompting the change were requests from motorists to add a left-turn signal on Vervilla Road at the intersection of Chancery Street and Morrison Street to make the onramp to Highway 55 toward Manchester easier to access.
