Safety Changes Coming Today for Intersection in West Cary

Raleigh - The N.C. Department of Transportation is making the intersection of Green Level Church Road and Green Level West Road in west Cary safer by converting it to an all-way stop today. Motorists have not previously been required to stop on Green Level West Road.

Crews are working on the intersection, adding stop ahead and stop bar pavement markings, and modifying all signs for the intersection. They will also install solar flashers on the top of the stop signs for Green Level West Road for better visibility of the new stop conditions. The changes should be in place by late this afternoon. On-site flagmen will control traffic through the intersection while work is under way.

As drivers approach the intersection, they are advised to follow these right of way rules:

  • The first vehicle to the intersection has the right of way ahead of any vehicle that has not yet arrived;
  • When two or more vehicles reach an intersection at the same time, the vehicle to the right has the right of way;
  • When two facing vehicles approach an intersection at the same time, both drivers can move straight ahead. If one driver is going straight while the other wants to turn, the driver who wants to turn must yield. The driver who is traveling straight ahead has the right of way; and
  • Even with the right of way, remember to use the appropriate turn signals and be careful to avoid hitting other vehicles and/or pedestrians.
