NCDOT Converting Intersection in Apex to a Permanent Four-Way Stop This Week Monday, September 17, 2012

RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation will be converting the intersection of Green Level Church and Jenks roads in Apex to a permanent four-way stop on Wednesday, Sept. 19, weather permitting. The current setup allows traffic on Green Level Church to travel through the intersection, while traffic at Jenks Road has stop signs in both directions.

The change is taking place as a result of an NCDOT investigation that found traffic volumes and other factors warranted installing the additional stop signs. Crews will also be installing stop bars and “stop ahead” pavement markings on Green Level Church Road to help warn motorists of the new stop conditions. On-site flagmen will control traffic through the intersection while work is under way.

As drivers approach the four-way intersection, they are advised to follow these right of way rules:

  • The first vehicle to the intersection has the right of way ahead of any vehicle that has not yet arrived;
  • When two or more vehicles reach an intersection at the same time, the vehicle to the right has the right of way;
  • The vehicle with the right of way may move straight ahead or, if legal and after signaling, turn left or right;
  • When two facing vehicles approach an intersection at the same time, both drivers can move straight ahead or turn right. If one driver is going straight while the other wants to turn left, the driver who wants to turn left must yield. The driver who is traveling straight ahead has the right of way; and
  • Even with the right of way, remember to use the appropriate turn signals and be careful to avoid hitting other vehicles and/or pedestrians.
