Times, businesses, and traffic flows change. There are a few traffic lights in Lewisburg that are a constraint to modern day travel. Let's hear about them and see what it takes to have them removed.

I'll start with the traffic light at the corner of Andy's Wheel and Tire. Seriously, the cross traffic from Legion Street just needs a stop sign.

Yes! Why is it there? Another one is 2nd North and Water St. Take it down and make Water a stop street. And really 3rd st should not have any 4 way stops.

East Commerce street even though it is in the city it belongs to the State. All traffic controls such as red lights and stop signs come under the authority of T-DOT on state roads. To get them to change anything literally takes an act of congress. I agree that light at Andy's needs to come down but T-DOT won't do it.

Politics. Could this be part of our national problem?

The light located at Franklin Ave and Heil needs to come down and be replaced with a two way stop. The ideal solution would be to rename it Heil Ave starting at the red light at Hwy 50 and then let Franklin Ave begin at the trailer park. The current situation is confusing and pointless.
