Signs seek to slow traffic at Papillion intersection

The city of Papillion is using signs to try to slow traffic at a downtown intersection where a 10-year-old girl was fatally hit by a car earlier this year. The Omaha World-Herald reports that six yellow crosswalk yield signs were bolted to the street on Monday at the intersection. The city has been analyzing the crosswalk after a driver struck Abby Whitford in August as the girl crossed the street on her way to Sump Memorial Library. She later died in a hospital.
