LONGWOOD – Based on a safety review and evaluation of crash patterns, the N.C. Department of Transportation will change the traffic pattern at one Brunswick County intersection this week.
On Thursday, the Pireway Road (N.C. 904) and Ash Little River Road intersection will become an all-way stop. The work is weather dependent.
Currently, drivers on Pireway Road do not have to stop. While signs and pavement markings are installed, drivers should slow down in the area and be alert to crews working.
An all-way stop is an effective and cost-efficient way to improve the safety of an intersection and reduce the risk of serious crashes. To learn more about them, visit this NCDOT webpage.
