Petition Demands DOT Action At Deadly Intersection

GeneseeNow —  Thursday, August 1, 2013

A petition drive is underway.

The signers are hoping to force the DOT to re-design a deadly intersection in Wheatland. Three young people were killed at the cross-roads two weeks ago when they pulled in front of a truck at North Road and Highway 36.

The petition has 2,000 names so far. Meanwhile, state Senator Patrick Gallivan says he’s working with a group to get accident statistics on the intersection and then try to come up with a plan to make it safer.
