Council Orders an All-Way Stop at the Intersection of Bench Street North and Old West Main Street

Thursday, August 26 2010 12:00 AM
  The City Council approved a request for the All-Way Stop at this intersection at the Monday, August 23, 2010 Council meeting. The request was made by the Live Healthy Red Wing group because of the trail/pedestrian crossing Old West Main Street near the Cannon Valley Trail Head. There is a new demonstration bike route being implemented later this summer from the Cannon Valley Trail head to Broad Street along Old West Main Street, Withers Harbor Drive, and Levee Road that will add to the number of pedestrians and bicycles using the crossing at this intersection. Only the Bench Street approach to the intersection currently has a stop sign. There will be other features implemented at this intersection to allow for semi truck turning radii and traffic safety, including advance warning signs, pavement markings, and flashing red lights.

Please contact Director of Engineering Ron Rosenthal at with any questions.
