Troublesome Intersection Made Safer

Board of Police Commissioners vote to accept improved signage at Gould Lane and Featherbed Lane.

Have you ever approached an intersection and struggled to figure out who had the right of way. Such a case could be made for drivers along Gould Lane at the west intersection of Featherbed Lane. Travelers at this stop-sign intersection looking to make a left onto Featherbed often find it difficult because the oncoming traffic does not have to stop. Last week the Board of Police Commissioners approved the placement of a sign on the current stop sign post that will read “Oncoming Traffic Does Not Stop.” The hope is to eliminate confusion for drivers on Gould Lane and make traffic safer for those traveling on Featherbed Lane.

At this island-split intersection, there is also a stop sign for those traveling west on Gould looking to make a right onto Featherbed. There will be no additional signage added to this stop sign.

Are there any other intersections in town that you fond particularly cumbersome to navigate? Let the community know in the comments. We’ll take an unofficial poll from your responses.

At the Gould and Featherbed intersection there should be a yield sign where the North traveling traffic turns onto Gould. There is no way to know who has the right of way the people coming onto Gould from traveling North on Featherbed, or the people who just turned from traveling South on Featherbed onto Gould. As soon as you make the turn from Featherbed there is a conflict with others merging.

The Stony Creek Road / Pine Orchard Road intersection can be hairy...

Right now I live on Ivy Street and have noticed that it's difficult to walk the intersection at Ivy and Rose, headed up the hill of Ivy Street. For cars, it's not that bad but for pedestrians, especially at night, it can be tricky.
