(Michigan City, IN) The new stop signs in downtown Michigan City will stay at least for now.
Recently, some of the new stop signs were taken down in the area of Pine and Washington streets. Mayor Duane Parry supported the move feeling there were too many stop signs clogging traffic flow.
However, there have been complaints about an increase in speeding along with motor vehicle crashes and close calls. The board of public works decided to leave the rest of the stop signs up for 60 days to review the matter. The stop signs went in a few years when those streets were converted from one way to two way travel.
