City of Kingsport Traffic Division considering signal elimination on Watauga Street


KINGSPORT‚-City of Kingsport Traffic Division personnel are conducting a study to consider removing the traffic signals at the intersections of Watauga Street/Crescent Drive and Watauga/Lamont Street. If removed, the signals would be replaced by stop signs on each approach, creating a four-way stop intersections.

Current traffic volumes at these intersections do not support continuing signalization on a technical basis, although community input is welcomed.

Anyone with questions or concerns about removing the signals is asked to submit comments to the Traffic Division at 423-229-9487.
