The Golden Given Road East and 104th Street East intersection will be converted to an all-way stop starting Nov. 7 to enhance safety at the intersection.
The schedule for this change is weather dependent. Please visit www.piercecountywa.gov/trafficprojects for schedule updates.
The intersection, which is located west of Ford Middle School, currently has stop signs for the westbound and eastbound directions of 104th Street East.
The new stop signs on southbound and northbound Golden Given Road East will include flashing beacons alerting motorists to the stop signs.
Motorists traveling southbound and northbound on Golden Given Road East should expect some additional delay during peak periods in the mornings and evenings due to the new stop requirements.
A July 2018 traffic study determined a traffic signal or roundabout is needed at the intersection due to traffic volume and collision history. The intersection’s conversion to an all-way stop is being made as an interim measure while a project is developed and funding is procured.
