A dangerous intersection in North Port is getting a new traffic signal.

The signal at U.S. 41 and West Villages Parkway started to go up yesterday and should be up and functional by the end of the month.

Back in March, an elderly couple was killed when a 20-year old hit their car at the intersection. The couple had stopped while sheriffs deputies allowed cars to enter the highway after a Braves game. That’s when Samantha King rear-ended them, causing a chain reaction crash.
