Intersection Turns into All Way Stop with Completion of 10th Street at Washington Avenue
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— E. 10th Street, a new roadway in south Fayetteville, was recently completed and now creates a T-intersection with S. Washington Avenue. The City of Fayetteville Transportation Department is creating an all way stop at the intersection. Stop signs with supplemental ALL WAY plaques will be installed the morning of Tuesday, September 3.
City staff reminds residents to keep the sidewalk clear of vehicles, vegetation, and containers for recycling, trash, and yard waste so pedestrians can use the sidewalk instead of walking in the street.
The Fayetteville Police Department advises of the following procedures for all way intersections:
- Vehicle Right of Way – The first vehicle that approaches the intersection, is the first vehicle to proceed after coming to a complete stop. If two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the vehicle on the left must yield the right of way to the vehicle on the right.
- Vehicle Turn Signals – Drivers must use their turn signal 100 feet prior to the intersection.
- Pedestrian Traffic – If a crosswalk is marked, the pedestrian will always have the right of way over vehicles. If there is not a marked crosswalk, vehicles shall have the right of way, with due caution to pedestrians.
- Bicycle Traffic – Cyclists are granted the rights of pedestrians only if they dismount and walk their bicycle at an intersection.
