New Stop Signs Will be Placed at Hwy 289 and FM 120

POTTSBORRO -- The intersection of FM 120 and highway 289 in Pottsboro will now be a four-way stop beginning Thursday, April 3rd.

The City of Pottsboro originally wanted a stoplight at the intersection, however, after a study was conducted by TxDOT, the location did not meet criteria for a stoplight.

As a safety precaution TxDOT agreed to install two more stop signs along highway 289 at the intersection.

"When we determined we would move forward with the four way stop we basically see this as the first step or the next step to eventually getting a traffic light there," says Kevin Farley, Pottsboro City Manager.

The intersection has seen 28 accidents since 2009 when the intersection originally opened. None of the accidents were fatal.
