I am heartbroken to learn of another death at this intersection that has traffic crossing at high speeds. Again I urge MnDOT to place flashing lights several hundred feet in advance of the north and southbound lanes and place a sign that states "Dangerous intersection ahead, slow down."

This can be done very, very quickly and I still think the intersection was laid out properly, but the speeds are just too high. I was on the site right after it happened and believe the sunlight angle at the time may have played a role. Please do something this week to slow down traffic!

My thoughts and prayers to the families involved in this tragic accident.
