City announces new 4-way stop for safety

PADUCAH, KY – The city of Paducah says an intersection you regularly travel will soon become a four-way stop.

The city says the intersection of South 9th and Clark streets in Paducah will become a four-way stop effective Monday, Nov. 6.  The change, the city says, will make the intersection safer for pedestrians and drivers.

Stop signs have already been installed at the intersection, and they are covered. They will be uncovered on Monday. Crosswalks and parking restriction signs have been installed as well.

“This change matches the configuration one block away at South 9th and Washington streets,” City Engineer and Public Works Director Rick Murphy says. “This area sees significant pedestrian and vehicular traffic due to the residents and visitors of the neighboring Jackson House Apartments. Having both intersections function identically improves the safety for pedestrian and vehicular traffic.”
