GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) – Drivers using an intersection in southeastern Geneva County, the site of numerous wrecks over the years, will follow new rules this coming week.
The Alabama Department of Transportation said the intersection of Alabama Highway 103 and County Road 49 in Fadette will be converted to a four-way stop starting Thursday, August 26.
“The conversion to a four-way stop will increase safety and traffic flow at the intersection,” ALDOT said in a statement.
Currently, drivers using County Road 49 encounter a stop sign while those travelling Alabama Highway 103 do not stop at the intersection.
Earlier this year, Commissioner Weston Spivey told WDHN he had reached out to ALDOT’s Ozark office regarding residents’ concerns about the intersection. ALDOT reviewed the intersection and conducted a traffic count in late March.
