Orange Beacon Recommended For Blyth Intersection

Blyth | by Fadi Didi  

Public works says collision report does not justify fully-lit interseciton at Blyth Rd. and London Rd.

A flashing orange beacon is possible for a major intersection at the sound end of Blyth.

Huron County's Public Works department looked into whether the corner of County Roads 25 (Blyth Road) and 4 (London Road) would need full traffic signals to control the flow of vehicles.

Traffic counts taken between July and October of 2017 show traffic signals are not warranted for the intersection.

This includes traffic impact studies accounting for new businesses at the intersection, Tim Hortons, and Cowbell Brewing Company.

(Between 2015 and 2017, OPP report nine collisions at the Blyth Road/London Road intersection, eight of which involved failing to yield at one of the stop signs.)

For now, Public Works is recommending a four-way flashing beacon be installed until traffic signals are justified.
