Following an , the City will revert the intersection back to its previous design on Thursday, it announced Wednesday afternoon.
When Patch asked residents what they thought of the intersection change last week, several readers responded with disapproval and concern and 95 percent of readers who took our poll about the revised intersection believed it was dangerous and needed modification.
"I cannot believe the blind spot as you're traveling west on Monterey! It is awful! They better change that back before someone gets hurt," Patch reader Karen Beardsley commented.
After a little over a week of near-accidents and resident disapproval, the City of San Marino released the following message Wednesday afternoon:
At a meeting of the City of San Marino Traffic Advisory Commission on Monday night it was decided that the intersection of Oak Knoll Avenue and Monterey Road should be restored to its previous design.
The restoration of this intersection will occur on Thursday, May 24, 2012. For this to occur Oak Knoll and Monterey will be closed in this area from 9 a.m. until approximately 5 p.m.
