Watertown Police warn drivers to watch out for a new set of stop signs on Spring Street.
There were already stop signs on Palfrey Street at Spring Street, but now there are stop signs on Spring Street at that intersection to create a four-way stop. The intersection is about three blocks from Main Street and two from Common Street. The intersection has had numerous accidents over the years.
New stop signs and traffic signals are approved by the Watertown Traffic Commission.
The Watertown Police put up the following post on its Facebook page:
The intersection of Spring Street at Palfrey Street is now an All-Way stop. Motorists are now required to come to a full stop on Spring Street as well as Palfrey Street prior to proceeding through the intersection. Electronic message boards have been placed on Spring Street to provide motorists advanced warning of the new signs and to help drivers get into the habit of stopping at this location.
Please help spread the word!
