State transportation engineers are studying a rural Hubbard County intersection where two men, including a county employee, died last month.


The intersection at County Roads 9 and 45 leaves little margin for driver error. Eastbound traffic heading into the intersection comes down an incline on County Road 9. If north- or southbound motorists don't come to a complete stop at the intersection, eastbound traffic must be extra vigilant in coming to an abrupt stop.
