GRANTS PASS – As of Tuesday, Oct. 8, the intersection at NE “A” Street and NE Beacon Drive is a four-way stop. At least 13 accidents have occurred at that location in the past five years, most of which resulted in injury or death.
City crews installed two “Stop” signs and two “Stop Ahead” thermoplastic pavement stencils. As an added precaution, two “Traffic Control Change Ahead” signs were also placed on NE “A” Street.
In addition to the signs, new crosswalk lines were installed across NE “A” Street, and refreshed across NE Beacon Drive to help boost awareness of the new four-way stop. New large temporary “Stop” signs and variable message signs boards were also placed on NE “A” Street to help grab the attention of drivers.
