New all-way stop intersection will take effect the week of January 4
LILLINGTON – Officials from Harnett County Government and the Town of Lillington announced the addition of a new all-way stop at the intersection of McKinney Parkway and Alexander Drive in Lillington to improve traffic safety starting the week of January 4.
Temporary message boards will be placed along the roads to inform drivers of the upcoming traffic pattern shift.
Motorists should drive slowly through the area and remain alert for the new traffic pattern.
As a reminder, drivers approaching an all-way stop should follow these rules:
- The first vehicle at the intersection has the right of way;
- When two or more vehicles reach an intersection at the same time, the vehicle to the right has the right of way and may go straight or, if legal and after signaling, turn left or right;
- When two facing vehicles approach an intersection simultaneously, both drivers can move straight ahead or turn right. If one driver is going straight while the other wants to turn left, the driver who wants to turn left must yield; and
- Even with the right of way, drivers should remember to use appropriate turn signals and watch for pedestrians and other vehicles.
