Default Stop light signal installed at last!

Going through stories at Oregonlive.com, I just now noticed the news about a stop light finally going in at the 178th intersection with TV Highway.

Dangerous TV Highway intersection in Aloha finally getting stoplight/Rose/Oregonian

TV Highway has always been a bad place to be for anything living not inside a motor vehicle. 178th is the point along the highway where people have had need to cross the road to get to the convenience store, bus stop, and so on. Since it's not a dense, high level revenue generating area, nothing much gets done barring death or injury, which is what happened sometime back in 2009 or '10; A couple kids got nailed while trying to cross the road. Though not fatal, it was enough to at least get ODOT to speed up its schedule to have a traffic light installed there.
