DOT Announces Changes to Dangerous Star Prairie Intersection

In response to several crashes including eight serious in the last fifteen years, the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Village of Star Prairie have announced changes to the intersection of Highway 65 at Jerdee Avenue and Jewel Street on the north side of town. In early October, Jewell Street will turn into a one-way northbound street only. The DOT stated that the cause of many of the crashes is traffic heading southbound on Highway 65 proceeding straight without yielding to traffic entering from Jerdee Avenue.
