Richmond is proposing to install stop signs at several city intersections as a result of concerns from residents.
The city wants to install four-way stop controls at the intersections of Barrett Avenue and Key Boulevard, and also at Macdonald Avenue and Key Boulevard. The city also wants to install two-way stop controls at the intersections of Roosevelt Avenue and Key Boulevard, as well as at Nevin Avenue and 36th Street.
The work would involve removing the stop signs on Key Boulevard at Roosevelt, and installing stop signs on Roosevelt.
At Nevin and 36th, the intersection has restricted views on the northbound 36th Street approach that requires the driver to stop in order to assess conflicting traffic. For this reason, two-way stop controls on 36th Street are recommended.
The proposals, which appears on the Richmond City Council’s agenda for tonight’s meeting, were born from the city’s traffic safety program, which works to study and analyze areas of concern by residents.
