The N.C. Department of Transportation plans to modify the intersection of Greenville Loop Road and Taylor's Ridge Road in northeast Wake County.
A traffic volume review led NCDOT engineers to pursue an alternative pattern at the junction.
Currently, there are stop signs installed on Greenville Loop Road, which carries more traffic than Taylor's Ridge Road. As part of a two-step process to reverse the pattern at the intersection, the department plans to temporarily make the junction an all-way stop.
On Sept. 29 at 10 a.m., crews will begin adding stop signs, stop ahead warning signs and pavement markings on Taylor's Ridge Road. The work should be completed by 2 p.m., weather permitting.
Once this intersection has remained an all-way stop for approximately a month, crews will remove stop signs and stop ahead warning signs on Greenville Loop Road so that only traffic on Taylor's Ridge Road will be required to stop.
Drivers should slow down, obey workers controlling traffic and proceed through the intersection with caution during its temporary configuration.
