Street issue in Uniopolis

July 3, 2012

UNIOPOLIS —  A street issue involving a small 30-foot stretch of land is no longer a dead issue in Uniopolis.

A dead end sign posted on South East Street in Uniopolis notifies motorists there is no outlet. The 30-foot stretch of grassy area at the end of the paving goes into the Trupointe Cooperative site where farmers take produce to be weighed.

Residents on the street said farmers should not be using the road as a short cut to get to Trupointe and that its use by farmers poses a safety risk to kids who play in the area.
