Another stoplight for New Town to be installed

NEW TOWN The City of New Town is getting another stoplight.

Crews were working on Friday to install the stoplight at the intersection of N.D. Highway 23 and College Drive on the east side of the city, according to the City Auditor’s Office.

This past summer the city’s first stoplight was installed at the intersection of N.D. Highway 23 and N.D. Highway 1804 on the west side of the city.

The stoplights are being done for better traffic flow through those intersections. New Town is impacted heavily by the oil development and many oil-field vehicles as well as other vehicles go through the city.
