Your View: Traffic light needed in Diamond

DIAMOND, Mo. — The intersection at Highway 59 in Diamond is a traffic hazard. This has been a dangerous area for a long time. There was a caution light at the location, but it was removed when the curbing was changed by the Highway Department.

A light needs to be installed. It would help people when crossing the street. Also, traffic would need to slow down more, limiting speeding and traffic accidents.
