Safety Changes Coming for Intersection South of Roxboro

Raleigh - The N.C. Department of Transportation plans to make the intersection of N.C. 157 (Hurdle Mills Road) and Wrenn-Crumpton-Brooks Road/Patterson Drive near Roxboro in Person County safer by converting it to a four-way stop. Motorists currently are not required to stop on Hurdle Mills Road.

On Monday, July 7, crews will add Stop Ahead signs and stop bar pavement markings, and modify all signs on each leg of the intersection. They will also install solar flashers on the top of the stop signs for Hurdle Mills Road for better visibility of the new stop conditions. The changes should take about 2-to-4 hours to be completed.

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.
