MAPLE HILL – Multiple Pender County intersections are scheduled to become all-way stops over the next couple of weeks.
The intersections were selected for the new traffic pattern based on a safety review, traffic volumes and crash patterns. On the following dates, these crossroads will become all-way stops:
Aug. 16: N.C. 53 at N.C. 50
Aug. 21: N.C. 210 at Malpass Corner Road/ Bell Williams Road
Aug. 23: Piney Woods Road at Horse Branch Road
Aug. 23: Penderlea Highway at Coras Grove Road
Drivers are urged to slow down while crews are working and be cautious of the new traffic pattern.
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.
