HOBART | The Board of Works on Wednesday approved a four-way stop sign request from Police Chief Rick Zormier.

The four-way stop sign will be placed at 5th and Center streets on a temporary basis while a portion of Main Street, south of City Hall, is closed for sewer repairs, officials said.

Zormier said there have been additional accidents at 5th and Center streets because drivers are using it as a detour around the sewer repairs on Main Street.

"The four-way stop sign will alleviate accidents," Zormier said.

Work on replacing a sanitary sewer line under the Norfolk Southern Railroad crossing is expected to take up to 45 days, city officials said.

That work began on April 1.
