DOT said they compiled the number of accidents on a 2.5-mile stretch of the road from 2000 through 2013 and found there were 71 reportable accidents, which is about what they would expect to find on that type of road.

Still the letter said that because of site issues, DOT would place an intersection warning sign near the intersection of Donaldson Road and Route 17B.

Sturm noted that town officials had made numerous requests to DOT regarding Route 17B over the years, and this was one of a very few times when the department agreed with the town’s point of view and granted the request.
