North Huron Council wants answers regarding safety at one of it’s busiest intersections for road traffic.

The intersection of Huron County roads 25 and 4 at the south end of Blyth is seeing frequent traffic delays, which are compounded by events such as the Festival of Wizardry this past weekend, the popularity of Cowbell Brewery, or the Blyth Festival during the summer.

Council moved to send a letter to the Huron County Works Department, inviting them to make a presentation to North Huron as to why county council voted down a recent staff recommendation for a flashing stoplight, and what the future is for the intersection that currently has two stop signs on County Rd. 25.

North Huron Councillor Brock Vodden says a stoplight is needed to improve safety at the intersection that has Cowbell Brewery one one corner and a Tim Hortons and gas bar on the other corner.
