Drivers in north Fayetteville will notice a change when approaching the intersection of Van Asche Drive and Steele Boulevard.
City crews on Monday (Dec. 21) installed stop signs along Steele Boulevard, effectively making the intersection a 4-way stop. Until now, only traffic on Van Asche was required to stop.
According to city officials, the change was prompted by an increase in traffic volume.
The Steele/Van Asche intersection is expected to become home to several new developments, including a new restaurant and brewery from the owners of JJ’s Grill. Just up the road to the north, a mixed-use apartment and retail complex and a new Buffalo Wild Wings are under construction at Joyce and Steele boulevards.
According to a news release, the city’s Engineering Division is evaluating whether any further improvements are necessary.
