The Lawrence Traffic Safety Commission voted Monday night to recommend the installation of stop signs at four intersections on Harvard Road.

The signs are proposed on Prescott Drive, Andover Street, Sturbridge Circle, and Somerset Court at their intersections with Harvard.

Terese Gorman, city engineer, said that increased development in the area is likely to increase traffic on Harvard Road. The request was submitted by the public works department, and will now be forwarded to the Lawrence City Commission.

In other action Monday, traffic commissioners:

Approved minutes of the previous meeting.

Recommended denial of a request to install a pedestrian crosswalk at 17th and Massachusetts.

Recommended approval of a stop sign for eastbound traffic on Crescent Road at Naismith Drive.

Recommended an island be painted at the intersection of North Second and Lincoln to keep traffic on the north side of Lincoln.

Recommended denial of a request to install a stop sign for westbound traffic on Locust at North 3rd Street.

Recommended denial of a request to install stop signs on Harvard Road at Centennial Drive. The request would have made the intersection a four-way stop.
