Residents, business owners call for traffic light at busy Gulfport intersection

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Businesses and neighbors near the intersection of East Taylor and Lorraine Roads in Gulfport say another accident there this week shows the need for a traffic signal.

Drivers say it's a dangerous place to pull in and out of and many have to turn north and use the light at Brentwood Boulevard. City leaders have also pushed for a light there, but MDOT says based on a recent study, there's no need for a signal.

Trang Pham-Bui will have more from both sides later today on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
