A change is coming to the intersection at South Church Avenue and West Rock Street in downtown Fayetteville.

Crews are scheduled to install all-way stop signs at the intersection on Monday, Nov. 7, according to a news release. The intersection currently only includes stop signs for east-west traffic on Rock Street.

The change is being made because of limited sight distance and public safety, as well as speed and traffic volumes, said Terry Gulley, the city’s director of Transportation Services.

Drivers using the intersection on installation day are encouraged to use caution and watch for workers.

Other intersections converted to all-way stops this year include Skyline Drive at Texas Way and Markham Road at Palmer Avenue.
