The Sheridan City Council received an update from local Law Enforcement Monday on the status of the Traffic Management Plan that has been crafted to help improve overall traffic safety within Sheridan and Sheridan County.

Motorists will begin to see some changes very soon at the nine most dangerous intersections within the City. Sheridan Police Chief Richard Adriaens explains just what kinds of changes people can expect.

In 2009, the intersection of Coffeen Avenue and Brundage Lane was responsible for the most accidents in Sheridan, followed by Coffeen and Sheridan Avenue, and Main Street and Dow. Adriaens indicated that the increased presence at these problem areas around town is just one step in making Sheridan a safer places for all motorists.

Mayor Dave Kinskey says that the community's cooperation and involvement will help greatly in making this Traffic Management Plan a success.

Chief Adriaens said that they will fully implement the plan the first of the New Year, and that they will have another update on the second half of the plan for the Council on January 4th, 2011.
