Clarksburg replaces the traffic light with a 4-way stop

CLARKSBURG, W.Va – A red light at the intersection of S. Chestnut Street and Camden Street in Clarksburg is being removed to make way for new stop signs that will turn the intersection into a four-way stop.

According to a City of Clarksburg Facebook post, the change is at the direction of the Traffic Commission and in the interest of public safety.

The city said that while the light was never discontinued, it was replaced with a flashing yellow light to allow for a continued flow of traffic on Chestnut Street. The city said that without the stop, traffic on Chestnut Street is dangerous, often due to a lack of driver caution. Residents had filed several complaints about the broken light, but the city said the light was working properly.

Now, instead of having a flashing red or yellow light on the stop light, all drivers approaching the intersection will be required to stop at brand new stop signs.
