Four-way stop in place at senior complex

Motorists in Williams will have to negotiate a new traffic control measure until four-way stopping on E Street at Marguerite becomes second nature.

The Williams City Council had a new intersection created last week for the safety of motorists who must exit into oncoming traffic from the Stony Creek apartment complex onto E Street, as well as those coming out of the Colusa County Office of Education Village and Woodland Community College, located directly across the street.

In addition to new solar powered flashing stop signs, the new intersection includes “stop ahead” warning signs and pavement markings with the word “STOP” near the crosswalks on E Street, in both the westbound and eastbound lanes.

The council approved the $10,000 project on June 17, with the new intersection designed in accordance with CA MUTCD guidelines.

“Staff has been looking at this intersection for quite awhile,” said City Engineer Trin Campos.

Campos said recent developments in the area, including Grocery Outlet, Dollar General, Love’s Travel Center, and the second senior apartment complex has created a higher volume of traffic on E Street.

“There has not only been an increase in motorists but an increase in pedestrians and bikes,” he added.

Safety for motorists coming out of the apartments, however, was the primary consideration for the new intersection. City officials said that while there were stop signs on northbound and southbound Marguerite Street, a driver’s visibility coming out of the apartments into unimpeded oncoming traffic was hindered by the curve in E Street, landscaping, and existing structures.

The stop sign project got underway on Thursday and took approximately two days to complete. â–
