WEAVERVILLE, Calif. - Trinity County has its first stop light and it just switched on Wednesday at 1 p.m.

The light is at the intersection of Highway 299 where it connects with a new road, Lance Gulch Rd. in Weaverville. It also connects to Glen Rd.

The Trinity County Department of Transportation said the traffic boost from the new roads created a need for the $1.1 million stoplight project.

They conceptualized the idea about 20 years ago but the project was finalized about five years ago.
