Stop signs to go on corner
Throughout the course of construction in downtown Seaford, the stoplights at the High and Pine streets intersection will be removed. Stop signs will be placed on both North and South Pine Street. The control box that is located at South Pine Street must be removed in order to accommodate construction in the sidewalk. Without the control box, the lights will not be able to function.
This change is slated to take place at the beginning of March and will last throughout the course of construction. New traffic lights will be installed at the end of the project at all intersections, including this one. At that time, the stop signs will be removed.

The money can also be used to finance the cost of making a unit accessible to the handicapped.
An informational meeting will be held in the Seaford Council Chambers, 302 E. King St., Thursday, March 9, at 7 p.m. Bernadette McCabe from DSHA will be present to review the program and answer any questions.
