Fayetteville Intersection Becoming All-Way Stop

News

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — The City of Fayetteville issued a news release stating that the city’s Transportation Department is installing stop signs at the T-intersection of Bishop Drive and Appleby Road on Monday.

“The sign installation will include a supplemental ALL WAY plaque below each of the three stop signs,” the news release states.

City officials reviewed speeds and visibility and determined that creating an all-way stop at the intersection would increase safety for all users.

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.
