Danville will consider spending more than $9,000 to study traffic patterns on the cross streets between Lexington and Maple avenues, from Fourth Street to St. Mildred's Court.
City Commission will meet at 5:30 p.m. today, and will look at proposals from HMB and Palmer engineering firms.
It has been seven months since residents of St. Mildred's Court asked the commissioners to consider closing their historic street, which they say has turned into a race track by people who want to avoid the traffic light at Lexington and Maple avenues.
Commissioners have said that the problem should to be studied before a street was closed because a closure could cause more problems and congestion on other streets.
Residents say that their street is the only purely residential street in the area, and that its "S" shape causes visibility problems.
