Dangerous intersection is now a four-way

The dangerous intersection east of Samson underwent  a major transformation, on tuesday.

As of July 26, the intersection of State Road 52 and State Road 153/County Road 5 is now a four-way stop.  Previously SR-52 was free flowing and SR-153/CR-5 had a stop sign.

 Due to an increasing amount of accidents at this cross section, and in response, the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) opted to take action by implementing the four-way stop.

There are portable message boards in place to alert travelers to the change.

Last week, crews began to make the necessary changes by adding rumble strips.

ALDOT’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, environmentally sound transportation network across Alabama.

    Put a roundabout there. It will slow people down but not completely stop traffic in all directions. Or put cameras and motion sensors to ticket people.
