AYDEN – A Pitt County intersection is set to be transformed into an all-way stop next week to reduce the risk of serious crashes.
On Feb. 1, the N.C. Department of Transportation plans to install and implement the new traffic pattern at County Home Road and N.C. 102. Currently, traffic on N.C. 102 does not have to stop.
NCDOT crews will be adding stop signs and pavement markings. Drivers in the area should be alert for crews working and be prepared for the new traffic pattern.
The decision to improve the intersection was based on a safety review and crash patterns. Crews are expected to be finished with the conversion by the afternoon of Feb. 1.
