The City of Murfreesboro Transportation Department will conduct a comprehensive study of the stop conditions in downtown Murfreesboro to determine whether traffic warrants additional signage at more than a dozen intersections. 

“After the opening of the Broad and Memorial Bridge and the re-aligned Lytle Street, the Transportation Department will initiate a comprehensive traffic study to determine whether increased traffic warrants more than the standard stop sign at intersections in the downtown areas,” City Manager Rob Lyons said. “While a thorough study of downtown traffic conditions will take time, other safety enhancements will be implemented.”

The Transportation Department has scheduled repainting the existing pavement striping and stop bars on Maney Avenue and Lytle Street on Nov. 27. 

City striping contractor Kerr Brothers & Associates of Nashville will stripe the pavement markings in the downtown area.
