Drivers in the area might notice an unexpected addition at the entrance to Tower Park. This week, the City of Fort Thomas placed flashing stop signs there in response to numerous complaints and concerns about the safety of that intersection.
City Administrator Ron Dill said he has already received positive responses about the move by people happy to now be able to cross there safely and about the slowing effect it has had on cars entering the Midway District.
The City has communicated with KYTC over the last several years to relay these concerns especially with the increased usage of Tower Park for community events.
Dill said that city officials decided the public safety concerns were strong enough to go ahead and handle the issue by placing the signs at the intersection.
The Fort Thomas Police Department was notified of the change and has been monitoring the intersection as residents adjust to the change, to help give the stop signs more presence so that residents can adjust.
