A second red light has been installed in Parsons at the intersection of Tennessee Avenue S. and W. 4th St. According to Mayor Tim David Boaz, the reason behind the new light is twofold – to help slow down traffic and ease morning and afternoon congestion associated with Parsons Elementary. After installation is complete, the red light will flash for about a week to allow drivers to become used to the new light. Boaz stated that cameras, which are visible at the top, are actually sensors which will be used to detect motion and allow for better flow. He added the City of Parsons will soon be applying for state aid to upgrade the intersection at the main red light as well. Read all the local news, lifestyles and sports in this week's News Leader.
