School Safety on Normal Town Council Agenda

Ralph Weisheit

The Normal Town Council will consider a $256,000 bid for a traffic signal at the intersection of Airport and Shepard Roads.  Champaign Asphalt submitted the lower of two bids.  The signal is an attempt by the town to address the high volume of traffic at nearby Grove Elementary School and Normal Community High School. 

The town is also looking at widening Raab Road between the school and Towanda Barnes Road to improve traffic flow.

Normal Police would add a crossing guard to the intersection near Grove School.
