Traffic signal change in Sturgis

An existing traffic signal at South Nottawa and Congress streets will be flashing red in all four directions after the Sturgis City Commission approved a new traffic order this month.
The change initially was suggested by commissioners in 2014 as part of the design process for the second phase of the city’s reconstruction of South Nottawa Street.
A 2014 traffic study found the intersection did not meet standards to warrant an intersection signal, a conclusion that was supported by a second study conducted last spring.
The temporary traffic order will allow police to evaluate the change for about 90 days before removing the overhead signal and replacing it with four-way stop signs.
