The stop sign is being put in place as a safety precaution for those who use the Jasper Public Library, the new library annex as well as those who patronize a popular restaurant in the area.
Safety concerns for those who park in the spaces between 11th and 12 streets in front of the library prompted the installation of the new stop sign. These are angled spaces and sometimes drivers cannot get a good view of northbound traffic on Main Street. Main is a one-way northbound street from 7th to 17th.
Increased foot traffic in the area is another factor for adding the stop sign at 11th and Main.
There is stop sign at 12 and Main which will remain in place. Snap’s Restaurant is at 12th and Main Street.
