Safety prompts 4-way stop in Kennett Twp.

After too many accidents, the Kennett Township Board of Supervisors wants area residents to know that it approved changing the intersection of Bayard and Rosedale roads to a four-way stop sign, a township press release said.

The intersection of Bayard and Rosedale roads in Kennett Township has been changed to a four-way stop.

The intersection of Bayard and Rosedale roads in Kennett Township has been changed to a four-way stop to improve safety.

In addition to accidents, the impetus for the change also involved the general lack of site distance when crossing the intersection. The township tried to make numerous alterations to improve the site distance prior to creating a four-way stop, including removing trees and brush and painting cross bars on the road.

Two traffic studies commissioned by the township recommended the four-way stop. Due to safety concerns, the Safety Committee, chief of police, and public works director/roadmaster all supported the change as well, the release said.

The stop signs have been installed, including advance warning signs with flashers to inform motorists. Township officials are asking area residents to exercise caution at this location since some drivers may not be expecting to stop.

“We are confident that once everyone gets acclimated with the four-way stop, it will greatly improve the intersection and assist in decreasing the number of accidents at this intersection," said Township Manager Lisa M. Moore in the release.
