City of Monroe Engineering Department installs new stop signs in the Garden District
(Monroe, LA) The City of Monroe Engineering Department is set to reveal new stop signs at North 6th Street & Glenmar Avenue and North 5th Street & Erin Avenue.
The North 6th Street intersection at Glenmar Avenue will be adjusted to a 4-Way Stop condition. Currently, there are stop signs only by the approaches to the intersection on Glenmar Avenue. Advance Warning Signs will also be installed on North 6th Street prior to the intersection.
The North5th Street intersection at Erin Avenue will also be adjusted to a 4-Way Stop condition. Currently, there are stop signs only on the approaches to the intersection on Erin Avenue.
The stop signs are being installed to offset the free flow conditions on the North 5th Street and North 6th Street corridors. Since these streets are currently one-way with thwo lanes and limited stop conditions, motorists consistently traveling above the speed limit.
In addition to the installed 4-Way Stop conditions, this entire corridor is currently being studied to soften the speed and volume of motorists and the best ways to blend pedestrians and cyclists with the existing traffic.
