Russell County citizens praise traffic light at US 431, 165 intersection

For Jessica Luke, manager at Castle Fuels, coming to work through the US 431 and 165 intersection was a dangerous endeavor. "I'd just go around the intersection and come to work through the back way," Luke said. "I've seen so many accidents there I've lost count." For years, the intersection has posed a problem for area residents, causing numerous wrecks as drivers attempt to navigate the dangerous split between US 431, 165 and 65. In the past, a caution light was introduced with the goal of reducing speeds near the intersection. Luke said the change produced few results.
