Boylan Avenue Intersections Get Four-way Stop Signs
Drivers will see big changes on Boylan Avenue, starting this week. Traffic signals at three intersections are being replaced with four-way stop signs to improve traffic flow. The new stop signs are located where Boylan Avenue crosses South, Lenoir, and Cabarrus streets.
The changes should reduce unnecessary wait time at the intersections while improving overall safety for drivers and pedestrians.
To help drivers get used to the changes, overhead flashing red traffic signals will be in place at the intersections for 30 days.
The Boylan Street intersections are in a residential area. City officials presented information about the traffic flow changes at a public meeting on Nov. 5, 2018 and followed up with letters and email notification to area residents.
The Transportation Department regularly reviews traffic signal intersection for safety and traffic flow improvements.
