Hamilton Seeks Traffic Improvements

Hamilton, IL – Mayor Steve Woodruff is circulating a petition that asks the Illinois Department of Transportation to improve the labeling of a merge lane on Highway 136 between Keokuk and Hamilton. Woodruff says yellow arrows should be painted on the highway, and larger merge signs are needed. The petition will be circulated for about two weeks. Woodruff says he decided to start the petition after his father's car was totaled while driving in the proper lane.
