New Stop Signs Turn Intersection of
Wood Avenue and 7th Street into All Way Stop
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The City of Fayetteville Transportation Department is installing stop signs at the T-intersection of S. Wood Avenue and E. 7th Street on Monday, March 2.
The decision to turn the intersection into an all way stop was made due to limited sight distance, approach speeds, traffic volume, and the desire to increase pedestrian safety. Sign installation will include a supplemental ALL WAY plaque below each of the three stop signs.
The Fayetteville Police Department advises of the following procedures for all way intersections:
- Vehicle Right of Way – The first vehicle that approaches the intersection, is the first vehicle to proceed after coming to a complete stop. If two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the vehicle on the left must yield the right of way to the vehicle on the right.
- Vehicle Turn Signals – Drivers must use their turn signal 100 feet prior to the intersection.
- Pedestrian Traffic – If a crosswalk is marked, the pedestrian will always have the right of way over vehicles. If there is not a marked crosswalk, vehicles shall have the right of way, with due caution to pedestrians.
- Bicycle Traffic – Cyclists are granted the rights of pedestrians only if they dismount and walk their bicycle at an intersection.
