The problem of Deadman's Curve may be solved
Residents in Bridgeport are fed up with a stretch of road they call ?Deadman?s Curve,? and it looks like something may finally be done to address their concerns.
Bridgeport Mayor John Fabrizi and the district?s city councilmen met with state officials Monday to discuss the problem. Fire and police officials and neighborhood residents were also present at the meeting.
The stretch of road is located on East Main Street near the Evers Street intersection. The section of roadway has even been called a death trap by residents because of the number of accidents that happen there.
Although the speed limit is 35, neighbors say people often drive much faster than that. Just two weeks ago, a Bridgeport man was seriously injured when his car flipped while coming through the curves.
The state says it will look at the possibility of a traffic light, stop signs or more noticeable warning signs to let drivers know of the curves ahead of them.
