Many Morgantown residents claim the intersection of Route 119 and Route 73 isn't the easiest to navigate. A Monongalia County Commissioner is saying he's been trying to fix the situation for years and on Wednesday he announced there might be changes in the near future.
According to Bloom, the meeting was productive. Officials are hoping to get fresh pavement, new paint on traffic lines, and extra items in place to help the flow of traffic. In addition, they're asking for a reduction in the speed limit.
"The problem is people do not realize how bad the intersection is. They're not from the area so they go the speed limit, 50 miles per hour, not realizing there's two or three different intersection roads coming in from unique angles," said Bloom.
Drivers could start seeing changes within the next few months.
