City officials look to ease congestion at busy SB intersection

Posted: Updated:

Scottsbluff city officials are discussing possible options for an intersection that's causing slow traffic flow.

Council members are deciding whether to add a turn lane at the intersection of 27th Street and Second Avenue.

The high school intersection causes a lot of traffic congestion throughout the day, especially before and after school and during lunch times.

"If we choose to put-in a turn lane up here at the high school, we would just take away this parking that runs East to West right here, north of the park," said Scottsbluff Assistant City Manager Nathan Johnson.

City officials will readdress the issue as a main priority during their 2014/2015 budget meeting.
