New Traffic Light and Stop Signs Installed on Kent State Campus
Students and employees returning to Kent State University for the spring semester will encounter a couple of new traffic situations as they navigate campus.
A new traffic light has been installed at the intersection of Loop Road and Rhodes Road, near the Kent State Child Development Center. The new signal, which replaces the stop signs previously at that location, will be operational beginning this Friday, Jan. 11.
Dean Tondiglia, associate director of public safety for the Kent State Police Department, said the new device will allow for better traffic control at the busy intersection, which is also close to the new University Edge student housing development on Rhodes Road.
In addition, two stop signs will be installed tomorrow at the intersection of Loop Road and Jackson Drive to assist pedestrian traffic across Loop Road.
“We are always looking for ways to improve public safety on campus, and both of these changes were made with that in mind,” Tondiglia said.
Classes at Kent State resume on Monday, Jan. 14.
