All-way stop signs coming to Bowman-Downs intersection

All-way stop signs coming to Bowman-Downs intersectionCrews place a temporary sign at the intersection of Bowman Road and Downs Street, where blinking, all-way stop signs will soon be posted. The intersection has been the seen of several traffic collisions, and members of the public have complained about poor visibility from some approaches. The Ridgecrest City Council approved a project last month to improve the intersection. Those improvements have already drawn public accolades. “Just fabulous,” commented Richard Wagner, a citizen speaking from the public microphone at Wednesday’s council meeting. “It’s night and day from where it started … I just want to say thank you for listening and taking action.” — Photo by Laura Austin
