DOT adding four-way stop on N.C. 96

Starting this week, the N.C. Department of Transportation will make improvements to the intersection of N.C. 96 and Old Beulah Road north of Selma.


This intersection is currently a two-way stop, with stop signs only in place on Old Beulah Road. The DOT determined the intersection should be converted to a four-way stop after an investigation found that traffic volumes and other factors warranted installing stop signs on N.C. 96.


In addition to installing stop signs, crews will paint stop bars on the road to show motorists where to stop. On-site flagmen will control traffic through the intersection while work is underway.
