Default Intersection by the Mill will be closed

I'm glad to see that the gov't is doing something about this dangerous
intersection. It's by where the RIO steakhouse was. If you
have problems reading it - you can't make a left turn from
this intersection coming out of the road or on the highway.

So keep this in mind so you don't have any 'oopsie' moments!

Here is the article from the Amigoe translated from Dutch

ORANGE CITY - From the Sasakiweg vehicles can not turn left to The Mill. Also it is not possible from The Mill Sasakiweg through the left towards North riding. Department Public Works (DOW) yesterday placed a large number of gates placed the crossing which is largely completed. It goes by a traffic committee, which among other movement specialists of the police are, to a temporary situation. The committee wants the number of accidents on the Sasakiweg reduction. Over time will be made whether the placement of the barricades impact on traffic safety. Then it is decided whether the traffic situation is permanently maintained.

OMG - I am so sorry for your loss! Let's hope that this move
prevents some accidents.

They have a big 'warning' sign that you can't turn there any more
on both sides and those wooden horses blocking the intersection.
