Traffic Flow Changes Coming to Downtown Sanford

Pedestrians and drivers will soon find a new traffic flow in downtown Sanford. Beginning Monday, November 16, the intersection of Wicker Street and Steele Street will become a 4-way stop.

For the first week, the existing signals will flash red in all directions to help the public adjust to the change. Fred Smith Company will place barrels and stop signs at the intersection, though the signs will be bagged until the signals are removed.

On Sunday, November 22, the signals will be removed and the bagged stop signs will be uncovered. Once that takes place, Fred Smith Company will be able to focus on finishing the street corners at that intersection. The barrels will remain in place until work is complete.

For more information about the change in traffic flow or the streetscape project, contact the City's Public Works department at 919-777-1122.
