New three-way stop coming near Lake Avalon


Motorists can anticipate a new three-way stop at the intersection of Lancaster Drive and Knighton Drive near Lake Avalon coming soon.

The intersection, which currently includes only a stop sign for westbound Lancaster traffic, will become safer for both motorists and trail users. The new traffic improvement is associated with the addition of a trail crossing on Knighton Drive for the city’s new central trail system being built, but will also slow traffic and improve visibility adjacent to the existing recreation area there.

This change could be in place as soon as Friday, Nov. 22 or as late as Tuesday, Nov. 26, depending on the weather.

New signs with flags will be installed on Knighton Drive, and the crossing is painted on Knighton which signifies the trail location. Trail users should yield to vehicle traffic in the area and at all crossings on the trail systems in Bella Vista.
