New all-way stops approved for Atchison
04/08/2021

(KAIR)--Four-way stops are coming to more intersections in downtown Atchison, following adoption of a resolution Monday by the Atchison City Commission establishing all-way stops at 5th and Commercial, 6th and Commercial, and 7th and Commercial.

Calling the latest additions to downtown Atchison traffic control “consistent” with other four-way stops installed in the downtown district in recent years, Assistant City Manager Justin Pregont outlined the proposed placement during Monday’s commission meeting, noting that the 5th and Commercial Streets location could prove to be more complex to driver’s than the others. He added that complex, to his mind, means safer.

Discussion followed Pregont’s presentation, including questions from Vice-Mayor Allen Reavis regarding enactment of potential driving prohibitions, such as no u-turns, as a matter of traffic safety. Saying that the new stops won’t be effective until June First, Pregont said time remains to discuss such possibilities.

Once discussion concluded, the Commission adopted the resolution approving the four-way stops with a unanimous vote of support.
