City given federal grant for stoplight

Drivers won’t have to figure out when it’s safe to cross a wide Greenwood intersection when the city puts up a new stoplight in the future.

The city received a federal grant to put up a new traffic signal at Graham Road and Main Street, which will replace the stop signs currently in place, Greenwood director of community development services Mark Richards said.

As of now, the stoplight won’t be put up until 2018, when the federal money is made available. Greenwood should have all of the designs completed by the end of next year, so the project could get bumped up a year or two if more funding is available or another city or town drops a project, Richards said.
