Cars drive on Route 202 in Windham, where state transportation officials plan to put a traffic light on the intersection with Falmouth Road.

Plans are in the works to fix a dangerous intersection in Windham.

The Maine Department of Transportation held a public hearing Wednesday night on a plan to install a traffic signal at the intersection of Route 202 and Falmouth Road.

“There are four people coming at the same time when it’s busy, and we have to be very careful, because sometimes somebody goes before they’re supposed to, and it scares me,” Claire Cressey of Windham told CBS 13.

The DOT says it’s a high-crash location and that traffic tends to back up on Falmouth Road.

People at the meeting Wednesday night were in favor of the plan.

“I think it’s a great idea,” Jason Libby said. “I actually know personally a person who was killed at that intersection years ago.”

The DOT says they were required to hold the public meeting before moving forward with the project.
