GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — The Alabama Department of Transportation announced that a dangerous Geneva County intersection is now a four-way stop.

On Tuesday, ALDOT announced that the intersection of Highway 52 and Highway 153/County Road 5 is now a four-way intersection.

Previously, Highway 52 was free-flowing and Highway 153/County Road 5 had to stop.

Due to the high volume of traffic to and from the beach, it had become a dangerous and deadly intersection.

The change is intended to prevent traffic accidents in the area.
