The north entrance to Iola, from U.S. 169 via Oregon Road, is more visible after overhead lights went into service late last week.
The intersection has six fixtures, three on each side of the north-south highway. Oregon Road has seen an increase in traffic since Allen County Regional Hospital opened half a mile west on north Kentucky Street in December 2013.
County Commissioner Tom Williams proposed lighting the intersection with U.S. 169 and Oregon as a safety measure.
