Currently, the intersection is a two-way stop with motorists on Papa Avenue required to stop. Once the stop signs are installed on Hina Avenue, all motorists shall be required to stop before proceeding through the intersection.
Department of Public Works crews will be installing “stop ahead” signs on Hina Avenue to help warn motorists of the new traffic pattern. Staff will also be on hand to control traffic through the intersection while work is being performed.
The conversion into an all-way stop is anticipated to be completed on Friday, prior to the start of the 2015-1016 school year when the intersection is used the most.
Drivers are reminded to follow the rules of the road when driving this intersection. If vehicles approach the intersection at the same time, right of way is to the vehicle on the right. Drivers are also reminded that they must come to a full and complete stop at all-way stops.
