T-Intersection Stop Signs

Policy

The City installs stop signs at T-intersections. Eligibility of the ‘T' intersection will be determined by the same criteria as defined in the stop sign policy for local street and arterial roadways.

Stop signs will not be considered for the top, or "thru-leg," of the T-intersection exclusively in that area. An all-way stop intersection must be installed.

Rationale

The intersection should have no adverse characteristics, such as steep grades or severe curves, that would contribute to or cause a safety hazard.

Procedure

The party requesting a T-intersection stop sign should contact the Public Works Director. The request will be reviewed and determined if the intersection is eligible for petitioning.

The petitioning procedure for the installation of traffic control devices must be followed.
