Alerts & Information for (Wednesday, September 17, 2014)
General Alert

Recently the entrance/exit drive from Sam’s on Portage has been reconfigured. This reconfiguration is partially due to a report put together by Det. Kim Haines and given to Major Ty Bissler. In the report, the stats for the number of automobile crashes which occurred at this location for 2012 and 2013 were collected. The report was broken out into injury and non-injury crashes. This location was compared to the intersection which is just west at the traffic signal. The number of crashes was significantly lower at the traffic light than at the location next to I-Hop. Major Bissler contacted the Stark County Engineers and made them aware of the situation. Major Bissler then worked with Stark County Engineers and Stark Enterprises to make this location safer. Drivers now exit from Sam’s Club turning right only and the entrance to Sam’s can only be made while traveling east on Portage. This reconfiguration should greatly decrease the number of traffic crashes at this location.
