The intersection at Route 94 and Jackson Avenue in Cornwall is the site of numerous traffic accidents each year. The state Department of Transportation is now studying the intersection to determine if a traffic light is warranted.

The study will likely take about six months to complete, DOT spokesperson Gina DiSarro said. The average daily traffic on Route 94 in that location in 2014 was about 8,391. The new study will collect recent data, DiSarro said.

“I believe it’s the most dangerous intersection in Cornwall,” Town Supervisor Richard Randazzo said. “We’ve seen a number of accidents over the years.”

The intersection is near Cornwall High School and Salisbury Mills train station. Randazzo called the intersection “busy” and “difficult.”
