New Four-Way Stop on Middle Creek Road

Posted 12-13-17

Please note: previous information released stated that the new four-way stop would be in effect beginning Wednesday, December 13. However, forecasted weather conditions make it more advantageous to install stop bars at the intersection Thursday morning.

On December 14, drivers passing through the Middle Creek Road/Ernest McMahan Road/Fox Meadows Blvd. intersection will stop and take notice-literally-of a new four-way stop. City staff have studied this intersection, looking for ways to make it more efficient and safe.

A recent independent warrant analysis by our consultant traffic engineering firm recommended the best approach would be to install a four-way stop. Installation of traffic signals was also considered, however the analysis showed that traffic volumes were too low to justify that option. The four-way stop is expected to improve traffic flow and safety.
