Stoplights replaced with stop signs in Boylan Heights

The drive through Raleigh’s Boylan Heights neighborhood is expected to get quicker when the City of Raleigh replaces traffic signals at three intersections with four-way stop signs.

The change should reduce unnecessary wait time at the intersections for Boylan Avenue drivers when no traffic is coming from the side streets.

Where Boylan Avenue crosses South, Lenoir and Cabarrus streets, the city will remove stoplights and replace them with stop signs.

To help drivers get used to the changes, overhead flashing red traffic signals will be in place at the intersections for 30 days.

City officials outlined the planned change for residents at a public meeting on Nov. 5, 2018, and followed up with letters and email notification to area residents.
