Four stop signs at unused railroad crossings in Fulton may soon be eliminated.
Although rail service between Mexico and Fulton has not operated in several years, the pesky stop signs in Fulton remain.
The Fulton Traffic Commission has recommended that all four signs be eliminated. They are located along St. Eunice Road, Industrial Drive, Ewing Avenue, and Westminster Avenue.
Another stop sign is located on Campus Drive leading into the east entrance of William Woods University but the city does not own that stop sign and has no control over it.
Fulton City Engineer Greg Hayes said he researched the situation on the stop signs along the currently unused railroad and learned that these four signs are the only ones in the entire state located at railroad tracks.
