As a result of a recent traffic study, the City of New Port Richey Public Works Department announces the following traffic pattern changes along Madison Street:
- The existing single stop at the intersection of Madison Street and Kentucky Avenue will be converted to a three-way stop
- The two-way stop at the intersection of Madison Street and Indiana Avenue will be converted to a four-way stop
- The single stop at the intersection of Madison Street and Gulf Drive will be converted to a three-way stop
Drivers in and around the area may notice message boards on Madison Street notifying them of the potential changes. The traffic pattern changes will be implemented on Tuesday, November 22, 2022.
As a reminder Section 316.123, Florida Statutes, states: At a four-way stop intersection, the driver of the first vehicle to stop at the intersection shall be the first to proceed. If two or more vehicles reach the four-way stop intersection at the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left shall yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.
