Leesburg announces new four-way stop intersections in downtown
LEESBURG, FL – The Leesburg Public Works Department is converting two intersections in the downtown area to four-way stops. The changes are being made to address safety and traffic concerns.
On January 7, four-way stops signs were installed at the intersection of West Meadow Street and North 3rd Street. Temporary warning lights are in place by the new signs on 3rd Street to serve as an additional notice of the change for motorists. The lights will remain there for about a month.
Effective Tuesday, January 21, the crossing at West Magnolia and South 9th Street will be converted to a four-way stop. Temporary flashing warning lights will also be used by the new signs on the 9th Street side of this intersection to help ensure all traffic is aware of the change.
Drivers and pedestrians are encouraged to use extra caution while navigating these areas as everyone learns the new traffic patterns.
For questions or additional information, please contact Deputy Director of Public Works Neil Gaines at 352-435-9442.
