County proposes stop signs in Victory Gardens, Little Cypress

After a citizen complaint about speeding in the Victory Gardens neighborhood outside Bridge City, the Orange County Commissioners Court is proposing to install a four-way stop sign.

Other stop sign installations to slow traffic are also in the future for two different Little Cypress neighborhoods off Highway 87 North.

The court will conduct public hearings on the proposed stop signs, as required by state law, on Tuesday, August 30, at 1:30 p.m. in the Commissioners Courtroom in the county administration building.

The four-way stop in Victory Gardens is planned for Patillo Road and Briggs Drive. The area is off Highway 87 South and is Precinct 3 with Kirk Roccaforte as commissioner.

After hearing the complaint about traffic in Victory Gardens last month, Precinct 1 Commissioner Johnny Trahan said he had complaints about speeding traffic in two neighborhoods in his precinct. He is proposing a three-way stop at Little Cypress Drive at West Bluff Road, along with a four-way stop at Pine Park Boulevard and Timberlane Drive, a subdivision near the Sabine River Authority headquarters.
