Two Intersections in Lakewood to Become 4-Way Stops

2

lakewoodStop! Look three ways! Two intersections in Lakewood are about to become a four-way STOP intersections this week. Drivers and pedestrians can expect to see new four-way STOP signs and warnings at Fourth Street and Lexington Avenue as well as Seventh Street and Park Avenue this week.

For the past few weeks, Lakewood Public Works has been placing informational signs at each location to alert drivers and pedestrians that changes are coming to those intersections.

Todd Day, Lakewood Township engineer, has announced that two new changes are being implemented this week, just after the morning rush hour, around 9:00 or 10:00 a.m., in a continuing effort to improve traffic and pedestrian safety in Lakewood.

Day says, “We will be using changeable message signs on each approach the day of installation and then for about three days after at each location. We will have these signs, along with a ‘STOP Ahead’ sign posts for each new STOP sign.”

As an extra reminder to stop no matter from which directions you are approaching the intersection, drivers can expect to see twenty-four inch stop bars and “STOP” markings on the road, and reflective red posts.

The recently discussed Lakewood Road Action Plan called for four-way stops at Fourth and Lexington, by the library, and Park Avenue and Seventh Street as a safety measure because people are inching out to see around the cars.
