After a few delays, the new traffic signal installed this year at the newly built intersection of Haymaker Parkway and Erie Street will start stopping cars Thursday.

The city issued a brief notice to media this morning advising the start of the signal’s operation effective Thursday.

The signal was added to the reconstructed intersection, which had been closed for decades since the original construction of the parkway, as part of the reopening of Erie Street to serve the new Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center and Kent Central Gateway transit center.

The signal will aid pedestrians using the new Esplanade link between the Kent State University campus and downtown Kent.

Just in English? How are foreign students with limited English going to know how to cross the street?

Hey, wait now. Kent is touting its vast array of international students. Why not in other languages? It is Kent, after all... I just feel bad for anyone living within earshot of one of the crosswalks. All day and night with the beeping/clicking and that ladies darn voice with her, "Safe to Cross" and "Light on for" nonsense.

Well, Clarissa, some of us are concerned about you seeming disengagement with reality. Some of your family members are also worried about you. Have they talked to you about their concerns? Townhall ll is in the phone book. If you would like, I would be happy to be a go-between to set up an appointment for you. Just let me know.

Ha Ha space cadet Kit Myers! Still living off that gold mine on S. Willow? Ha ha that one still makes me laugh.... wow! By the way hows that ex of yours is she still taking you to cleaners? Was it Ula? And her daughter? Now that was another funny one too. Me and the girls at the office still laugh it up over that mad state of affairs that situation caused and cost you!! Well sleep tight you silly old bird!

I was not taken to the cleaners by anyone, and your continuing to slander both myself and my ex-wife is getting along toward a lawsuit. I think your nasty disposition is probably a result of your excessive drinking and gambling losses. I really think you need to talk to your family about it. Seriously.

Clarissa, you and "the girls at the office" are obviously no-nothing useless gossips-mongers who are taking a paycheck from your employer for just sitting there chit-chatting instead of working. I would fire the lot of you in a New York minute. I hope you don't have kids whom you are teaching your brand of slime commentary. Why don't you drive by my beautiful rental on South Willow, get out of your car, and smell the roses on the trellises. it might sweeten your disposition, but I am sure there is little hope for you at this point in your life. I am saving all your slanderous commentary for a good lawsuit. You need help, Clarissa. Your thinking is not normal. What have I, my ex-wife, or her daughter, ever done to you that we are deserving of such invective? Shame on you, Clarissa. You can be better than you are. Townhall II is here for you. Stop your drinking!
