The developer of Fletcher's Grove and the Maryland State Highway Administration are working toward putting a traffic light at the intersection near the new Weis Market, Mayor Charles F. "Skip" Kauffman Jr. told town council members Monday at their monthly meeting.

"We are working hard to get that light up ASAP due to the number of traffic accidents we've had out there," Kauffman said.

While the town cannot force the highway administration to put up a traffic light, it has lobbied for one, Town Manager John Kendall said after the meeting. The developer is responsible for the light, he said.

According to Kendall, since Weis Market opened in December, about 12 accidents have occurred at the intersection. Police Chief Jeff Hewett said he knew of at least four accidents and minor injuries.
