Four-Way Stops Implemented On Washington Due To Eighth Street Project
By Beth Milligan | May 11, 2019
Temporary multi-way stops have been introduced to two intersections on Washington Street in response to increased traffic due to the reconstruction of nearby Eighth Street.
City staff installed signs at the intersections of Washington Street and Cass Street as well as Washington Street and Boardman Avenue Friday. North and south-bound vehicles on Boardman and Cass are now required to stop at the Washington Street intersection; east and west-bound traffic had already previously been required to stop.
The multi-way stops will be enforced through the completion of the Eighth Street project. Advanced warning signage will be provided to notify drivers of the requirement, and additional plaques will be provided on existing stop signs for east and west-bound traffic on Washington Street to notify drivers the intersections are now multi-way stops.
