Those of you in the “I’ll believe it when I see it” crowd can now believe it.

True to their word, the Florida Department of Transportation has installed a 4-way traffic signal at the intersection of SR-82 and Griffin Drive.

VERY IMPORTANT: The lights are NOT FUNCTIONAL YET. At least not as of 4:00pm on December 12.

But they have been installed.

Many people have complained over the years that the Griffin & 82 intersection is highly dangerous, especially during rush hour.

And “Many people” are exactly right. That intersection can be scary – especially when trying to turn left on to 82.

The Gateway Sun will reach out to FDOT tomorrow morning to see if they know when the lights will become active.
