How do you prefer N. Norton intersections? Traffic lights, 4-way stops or leave it alone?

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Multiple intersections on N. Norton Ave were the primary focus of Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.

A few years ago, the city removed traffic lights at the intersections of 2nd St and N. Norton and 1st St. and N. Norton. Now, the city is debating yet another change to the intersections.

The intersections land in District 3 councilman Nate Brewer’s district. He told other council members Tuesday night that businesses in his district want the traffic lights re-installed, especially at the 1st St. intersection.

Debate about the intersections begins at the 30 minute mark.

The lights were removed in 2018 because of the high cost to repair and replace the the lights at the intersection.

Council president Lee Perryman suggested a 4-way stop at both intersections. “A 4-way stop would be much more affordable, and actually better as an impediment to high-speed traffic coming through,” he said.

This project was also discussed alongside traffic lights at the intersection of Old Birmingham Hwy. and James Payton Blvd.

At the end of the discussion, four of the five council members seemed to support the 4-way stops. Councilman Nate Brewer was opposed to the 4-way stop.
