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.
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.
drivers approach the intersection, they are advised to follow these right of
- 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.
