September 14, 2016, Monroe, NC – The N.C. Department of Transportation is improving safety at the intersection of Unionville Indian Trail Road and Ridge Road near Unionville by converting the intersection to an all-way stop.
Weather permitting, the department will implement the change on Wednesday, Sept. 21, and motorists should be prepared to treat the intersection as an all-way stop that day. Crews will install stop signs requiring traffic on Unionville Indian Trail Road to stop at the intersection before proceeding. Drivers take turns entering the intersection at a multi-way stop, resulting in fewer and less severe crashes.
The department studied the intersection and determined that safety could be improved with the installation of an all-way stop. Digital message signs will alert motorists of the upcoming change.
As drivers approach the updated intersection, they are advised to follow these right-of-way rules:
Even with the right-of-way, remember to use the appropriate turn signals and be careful to avoid hitting other vehicles and pedestrians.
