Traffic Alert - Additional Stop Signs at Olympia Avenue & Jefferson Street

All-Way Stop Installation Scheduled at Olympia Avenue & Jefferson Street
On Tuesday, June 27, starting at 6:30 a.m., the City will be installing all-way stop signs at the intersection of Olympia Avenue and Jefferson Street.

These additional stop signs near the LOTT Wet Science Center and Hands on Children’s Museum will improve safety for people and families who cross at the intersection. For the month after installation, temporary traffic control signs will warn drivers of the new stop signs ahead before they reach the intersection. Please use caution when travelling in the area.

“Many families with young children frequent this area and cross at the intersection,” said Rich Hoey, Director of Public Works. “This will improve their safety as they walk to the LOTT Wet Science Center and the Hands on Children’s Museum.”
