STAUNTON — Safety enhancements are planned for the intersection of Route 340 (Greenway Avenue) and Route 723 (Main Street) in the town of Boyce in Clarke County. The Virginia Department of Transportation will install dynamic (flashing) stop signs, high-visibility crosswalks and pedestrian crossing signs. The existing overhead flashing signals at the intersection will be removed.

On Wednesday, May 31, VDOT is scheduled to install the new signs and pavement markings. Motorists using Route 340 and 723 should be alert for flagger traffic control between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. due to installation work. About a week later, VDOT plans to remove the flashing signals. Motorists should again expect flagger traffic control between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. The work schedule is weather permitting and subject to change.

When installation of the new signs and markings is completed, drivers approaching the intersection on Route 723 from either direction will encounter the dynamic stop signs. They must stop completely and proceed when the way is clear. The high visibility crosswalks and accompanying pedestrian-crossing signs will be located on both directions of Route 340 and on westbound Route 723.

VDOT developed the safety enhancement plan following a request by the town of Boyce to evaluate the intersection operations.

The new signs and pavement markings are expected to enhance safety for pedestrians and motorists. VDOT has plans to install a full traffic signal at Route 340 / 723 intersection, and is working to secure funding for the future signal.
