Stop Signs Causing Issues

Two new stop signs on C.R. 13 at C.R. 45 have drawn backlash from some residents who fear the change will lead to an increase in traffic snarls and crashes. But according to the Elkhart County Board of Commissioners and the Elkhart County Highway Department, the new four-way stop will cut down on accidents at the historically dangerous intersection. The stop signs were installed late last month. Some residents describe the intersection, now, as nightmare. There's even a Facebook page called “Take Back Dunlap” where people are posting pictures of the backups, complaining about the congestion. Despite all that, it appears the signs are going to stay.
