A new stop sign at the intersection of Callaway Drive and Cherry Lane should improve safety and convenience for drivers, the city hopes.
The Carlsbad Public Works Department said Thursday it intends to install the new sign by the end of next week. There is already a stop sign in place for eastbound drivers, according to a city news release, but the busy traffic going westbound prompted city officials to revisit the situation.
Deputy Public Works Director Tom Carlson said the intersection can be confusing at times, so his department has decided to make the intersection a full four-way stop.
"We want to be proactive, and we need to identify and correct potential hazards," Carlson said.
