PARIS, TX – The City of Paris learned Wednesday, Dec 1, that problems with the manufacturer had delayed the stop signs ordered for the 90 STOP, LOOK, AND BE SAFE traffic study. The city expected the signs in mid-November.
“This was an unexpected delay, as the City of Paris had communication from the sign company they would take 14-21 days to arrive,” says Andrew Mack, Director of Planning and Development. “However, due to pandemic related problems with the manufacturer, they were unable to meet the standard production times.”
The City of Paris plans to wait until the signs are delivered to set a new date for the study.
“When the signs arrive, the City will update the 90 DAY STUDY dates and allow adequate time to publicize the changes,” says Cheri Bedford, Main Street Coordinator. You can find more information on the City of Paris home page, www.paristexas.gov. The website contains links to the adopted Comprehensive Plan and Attachments A & B Downtown plan. “An interactive map of where the new stop requirement will be implemented is also provided,” explained Cheri Bedford, Main Street Coordinator.
During the short-term study period, motorists and pedestrians are encouraged to use extra caution while traveling in the downtown area. In addition, a community survey will be available at the onset of the study, and citizens are encouraged to provide feedback.
