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
- 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.
