Lexington Avenue between the traffic light at Kroger and Straub Road in Mansfield is undergoing a safety improvement project.

Forty-three car accidents, with nineteen involving injury, have occurred in that area in the last three years.

So Mayor Tim Theaker asked city engineer Bob Bianchi to come up with a solution since that section of Lexington Avenue is being repaved.

Bianchi says a left turn lane will be added.

The driveway out of the True Value hardware store will become right turn only, and left turn arrows will be added to enter Kroger and L.A. Hair Salon and Spa.

The repaving will cost $125,000 and be paid from the quarter-percent resurfacing tax.

The left turn lane will cost $30,000, coming from the city's sales tax fund.
