Changes to Northside Drive & West Wesley Intersection!
Posted on Apr 7th, 2021
Just yesterday (April 5th), the turn signals at the West Wesley / Northside Drive intersection were installed!  Currently they are still bagged.  Our tremendous thanks go out to Gerry Woodruff and Kirk Rankin, our resident traffic gurus, for staying on top of this important upgrade!  Combined with the new stop light installation at the Northside / McKinley intersection (at the Bobby Jones entrance), which is also still bagged, it should be safer to navigate Northside Drive very soon!
