Stop signs will be placed at the intersection of Edison Road and Butterfield Parkway on Thursday at 6 a.m. to improve the safety of the surrounding communities.

Currently, there is only a stop sign for eastbound traffic entering Butterfield Parkway. The new configuration will force traffic to stop in all directions. It is expected to significantly increase safety. The stop signs are being inserted to help slow down traffic and allow for easier traffic merging through the intersection.

This intersection has seen an increase in traffic due to the closure of Honeycutt Road as part of the State Route 347 Overpass Project.
