The busy intersection at East Main, Pleasant and Miner is expected to become a three-way stop.
iBerkshires.Com reports the City Council last week passed to a second reading an ordinance to install a new stop sign on the westbound lane of East Main Street so that drivers coming down the hill will have to pause before entering the intersection.
There are already stop signs on Miner and Pleasant streets. East Main has been the right of way and will continue to be so in the eastbound lane.
The council also approved reducing the speed limit on East Main Street to 25 mph with the exception of the school zone by Colegrove Park Elementary School which is set at 20 mph.
The traffic change had been recommended by the Public Safety Committee, which had met immediately prior to the City Council last Tuesday. The change has been under discussion for some time following an accident at the intersection in which a child was injured.
