Worst intersection lacks signage

Ennis gets flying colors when comparing interstate traffic on I-35 with I-45. Smooth passage to Dallas or south to Houston is almost enjoyable considering the plight of those who traverse along frantic I-35. It’s enough to make one think about changing destinations. As for Ennis, the Avenue remains the city’s main vein. Ennis Avenue, the aorta roadway, manages to move traffic efficiently except for one, well-known bottleneck. Between McKinney and North East Main Street there are just two blocks, Dallas Street and North West Main Street. Add to that four red lights at each corner and a railroad track at the top of the hill. For good measure, consider the trains. They have the accompanying whistles, grade crossing lights, and of course, the lowering of the black and white gates with flashing red lights.
Everyone in town knows what also happens at those four corners. It’s what triggers the frustration of traffic. Cold molasses running uphill may seem faster than driving through the downtown bottleneck. Read this story and more in your Weekday edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
