New Stop Signs in Lincolnton

4 way stop

To increase safety and slow-down fast moving traffic, City Council voted to approve new stop signs on Nov 7.

Watch for New Stop Signs in Lincolnton 

updated 12/3, 9:20pm to: East Sycamore travelling WEST

New stop signs are being installed this week after approval at the November 7, 2019 Lincolnton City Council meeting.  Drivers, both residents & visitors, should be careful at these new intersection stops. The new stop sign locations are:

  • East Pine St at North Oak St – travelling west (now a 4-way stop)

  • East Pine St at North Oak St – travelling east (now a 4-way stop)

  • North Oak St at Alexander St – travelling north (now a 4-way stop)

  • North Oak St at Alexander St – travelling south (now a 4-way stop)

  • East Pine St at Rail Trail – travelling west (after Poplar stop sign)

  • East Sycamore at Rail Trail – travelling west (after Poplar stop sign)

  • East Sycamore at Court Square – travelling west, full stop at crosswalk

Some additional traffic safety reminders:

  • Stop for pedestrians at ALL painted crosswalks – in addition to the Rail Trail crossings, this includes the crossings on Main Street and around the Court Square. Pedestrians have the right of way and motorists should stop whenever a pedestrian is entering the crosswalk.

  • Yield to motorists when entering the Court Square – motorists already on the square have the right of way and all entering vehicles must yield to existing traffic.  roundabout_rules_graph_vis_impair

  • Four Way Stop Signs 

    • First to Stop = First to Go. The first vehicle at the intersection goes through the intersection first.

    • Farthest Right Goes First. When two vehicles get to the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right goes first; it has the right-of-way.

    • Straight Traffic Goes First. When two vehicles are directly across from each other, and one is turning left, the one that is going straight goes first.
