Huron to remove traffic lights

A recently completed traffic study shows there’s no need for traffic devices at three intersections with low-traffic counts:

• Berlin Road and U.S. 6

• Center Street and U.S. 6.

• Cleveland Road West and Ohio Street.

At some point years ago, the lights were vital in controlling Cedar Point traffic traveling into Huron on U.S. 6 or Cleveland Road.

“Before the (Ohio 2) bypass was put into place, Cedar Point traffic through the summer was rooted directly through the community,” Huron city manager Andy White said.

“You couldn’t move in Huron. Traffic was backed up from Ohio 61 all the way to the Chaussee.”

After construction crews built the bypass about 20 years ago, most motorists opted to cruise on a faster-paced highway rather than drive in stop-and-go traffic throughout Huron.
