MAGNOLIA, Del.- Millchop Lane and Peachtree Run in Magnolia is getting a makeover.
"It's about time that they do something about it because there's been too many accidents," said Carlos Antonia Pateco-Torres of Magnolia.
The Delaware Department of Transportation is installing a four-way stop sign to help make the area safer.
People like Patricia Scribner say drivers need to slow down.
"People are speeding. They do not watch where they're going. A friend of mine got hit by a truck. I also came home one day and saw an accident where a mail truck in the ditch," said Scribner of Magnolia.
Speeding isn't the only concern at the intersection. Some who live in Magnolia say they have even seen vehicles that run the stop signs that already exist.
Alvin Jones said one of his friends was struck by another vehicle at that intersection.
"He was coming home one day and someone run through the corner and struck him and knocked him sideways and wrecked his truck," said Jones, also of Magnolia.
Transportation officials said that between January 2007 and December 2009 there were 13 crashes at the intersection. None were fatal.
Many are hoping this makeover will increase safety in the area.
"It should have happened sooner in my opinion because the maybe we wouldn't have had so many accidents," said Stephanie Clark of Magnolia.
"When they are coming out of the area, consider the other people walking the streets because we don't have that many sidewalks and we got a lot of kids around," said Pateco-Torres.
Construction is expected to be completed in March.
