Motorists traveling on Highway 28 and Highway 29 will soon be required to stop at the Highway 28/29/114 intersection in Starbuck, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Mn/DOT is improving safety at the intersection by converting it from a two-way stop to a four-way stop during the week of April 19, weather permitting. Eastbound and westbound traffic will be required to stop at the intersection when the work is completed.
Motorists may encounter crews working at or near the intersection early in the week while they prepare for the conversion. The new stop signs will be enhanced with solar-powered LED lights and are scheduled to be installed on April 21. Stop-ahead signs, stop-ahead pavement messages and stop bars will also be installed on Highway 28.
In addition to the other intersection safety improvements, trucks will be restricted from parking on eastbound Highway 28 to ensure complete visibility at the intersection.
Mn/DOT reminds motorists to slow down and watch for crews working in the area.
