Drivers who struggle through the intersection of 4-Mile and Douglas will have their wishes answered Monday when the traffic signals there are restored.

A multi-vehicle accident over the Memorial Day weekend took out the signal control box there. Because each box is configured specifically for the intersection they control, replacing them can take weeks, giving drivers a headache in the meantime while they navigate 4-way stops.

At 4-MIle and Douglas – one of the busiest intersections in the county getting through the intersection takes a little longer than it might otherwise. The stop signs were replaced with flashing red lights about a week ago.

Caledonia Village Administrator Tom Christensen told The Journal Times that the new box was delivered Friday, but village crews need a team from TAPCO to help them install it. TAPCO is the company that makes the control box.
