Murfreesboro City Manager Rob Lyons said, "After the opening of the Broad and Memorial Bridge and the re-aligned Lytle Street, the Transportation Department will initiate a comprehensive traffic study to determine whether increased traffic warrants more than the standard stop sign at intersections in the downtown areas. While a thorough study of downtown traffic conditions will take time, other safety enhancements will be implemented."

The city will conduct a comprehensive study of the stop conditions in downtown Murfreesboro to determine whether traffic warrants additional signage at more than a dozen intersections.

The Transportation Department has scheduled repainting the existing pavement striping and stop bars on Maney Avenue and Lytle Street on Monday, November 27th. City striping contractor Kerr Brothers & Associates of Nashville will stripe the pavement markings in the downtown area.
