A little help here?

COMMERCE — To the editor:

The citizens of Commerce may know how to navigate around the road work on Monroe Street, but for those of us who don’t live in C-town and like to patronize the restaurants or attend an occasional college event, it is very confusing, especially at night.

If visible traffic signs had been posted at the intersection of Education Drive and Monroe Street on the night of April 22, 2014, perhaps my enjoyable evening would not have ended with a citation. A return visit to Commerce the next morning confirmed my reasoning of the previous night. There were no visible traffic signs upon exiting Education Drive. The pole holding the Stop and No Left Turn sign was tilted southward and slightly turned making it appear to be nothing but a pole from a driver’s vantage point. This morning I returned to the location and saw the pole with the attached traffic signs lying on the ground.

What will it take to post the combination Stop and No Left Turn sign and also place a One Way sign in this area?
