Opp Downtown Traffic Light Removed

A longtime traffic signal on main street in Opp is removed by the city.

Traffic backed up in Chesapeake, Ohio from the closed 31st Street Bridge.

Motorists in downtown Opp may have been a bit confused over the past week

The city has replaced the traffic signal at Main Street and Covington Avenue with a four-way stop. Longtime residents tell "news four" that the traffic signal had been in place since the 1940's.

The city council's decision to remove it came after an engineering study concluded that the light traffic flow didn't warrant a signal.

A one-million dollar renovation of Opp's downtown business district is currently underway.

    Gee, Terry Spicer accused of accepting bribes and lots of things in the news to comment on but the only place to comment is regarding the removal of a traffic light in Opp. Gurspan must be depriving us of comments about his buddy like he slants the "news" he "reports"

    We live in Skipperville, Al and travel to and thru Opp quite a bit. I think the 4 way stop helps the traffic flow a lot quicker. Especially when folks learn to pull up stop, check the traffic and go. Sure wish Ozark would do something with some of their downtown lights. Expecially on weekends, from 800pm or 9oopm to 600am. It is rediculious like it is. Thanks for listening.
