Albany leaders mull more stop signs near school zone

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany city leaders may install more stop signs near a heavily traveled school zone nearly two weeks after a child was struck by a car.

Commissioners and public safety officials discussed two additional stop signs on Kenilworth Dr. and Meadowlark Dr. near Lake Park Elementary School.

The talks come after an 11 year-old boy running home from school was hit at the intersection on January 19 after being released from school. 

Some say additional signs could improve safety. Others disagree and say the area has two crossing guards and stop signs.

Commissioners directed the city manager to study the area before any additional signs are placed.
