All-way stops coming to two Duplin County intersections

DUPLIN COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – More four-way stops are coming to Eastern Carolina.

The state Department of Transportation says two intersections in Duplin County will become four-way, or all-way stop this week.

Both intersections are on Highway 403 and are about 700 feet from each other. The intersection with Rones Chapel Road/Summerlins Crossroad Road and the one with Graham Road will become all-way stops on Wednesday.

The DOT says currently drivers do not have to stop on Highway 403 at those intersections.

The state says four-way stops are an effective and cost-efficient way to improve safety at intersections where there is a history of crashes.
