New stoplight set to go into action Tuesday at 10 a.m.

Midway's second stoplight, installed by the state Department of Highways, is scheduled to go live Tuesday, May 13, at 10 a.m. The intersection of Leestown Road (US 421) and Georgetown Road (KY 341) adjacent to Interstate 64 has been the scene of many accidents. It currently has a flashing yellow light for traffic on Leestown Road and flashing red for traffic coming off the interstate and Georgetown Road. This photo was taken from the entrance to the new Green Gables development, which already has a turn lane and is expected to generate more traffic. Meanwhile, the Chevron station in the distance has closed, apparently a victim of competition with the new Shell station with a full-service convenience store in Green Gables.
