Flossmoor eyes increased safety measures at downtown traffic circle

Following a downtown traffic accident last week, Flossmoor announced increased safety measures at the Sterling Avenue traffic circle between the north entrance to the Metra station and the post office.

In an Aug. 30 post on the Flossmoor Facebook page, village officials said the safety improvements will include the removal of some vegetation and crosswalks, the funneling of pedestrian traffic into the circle from the south end only and the relocation of the drive-up mailbox to a less congested location. Those improvements will be added in the next few months to increase visibility and safety.
