JUNCTION CITY, Ore -- After several fatal crashes on Highway 99 over the last few months, Junction City police said they will be cracking down on safety along the highway.
Officers said written and verbal warnings were previously used but they did not have much of an impact on drivers. Recently, they have seen an increase in the number of incidents in which drivers run red lights and stop signs.
Over the next few weeks, changes will be made to the traffic signals on Highway 99 at these intersections: Milliron, Highway 36, 1st, 6th, 10th, and 18th.
If drivers do not obey traffic laws, they could face a fine of $290. To learn more about the upcoming changes, click here.
