25 West Madison Street and North Carpenter Street; Stop Sign, stopping west and
eastbound traffic on West Madison Street at North Carpenter Street. Not Recommended. West Madison Street is a minor arterial roadway with significantly higher traffic volumes than North Carpenter Street, a local roadway. Stop on streets with higher volumes such as West Madison Street tend to increase rear-end crashes, increase congestion, and create a false sense of security for pedestrians that every vehicle will stop. Stop compliance is particularly low at T-intersections. Additionally, due to this intersection's proximity to the traffic signal at West Madison Street and West Morgan Street, a stop sign at North Carpenter Street will be unexpected for drivers. Therefore, CDOT does, not recommend an All Way Stop Sign at this intersection - (18-02285512) [Or2018-376]
