Frisco removes three stop signs on Elm Street ahead of construction work in downtown

Motorists heading toward Frisco’s Rail District will have to expect new traffic patterns at some Elm Street intersections.

Two-minute impact

According to a city press release, stop signs were removed at three Elm Street intersections on June 17.

  • Elm Street and Second Street
  • Elm Street and Fourth Street
  • Elm Street and Sixth Street

Stops will now be set up at these intersections in both directions, the press release states.

All motorists traveling east or west on Elm Street at Second Street, Fourth Street and Sixth Street are no longer required to stop and may proceed.

The other intersections will remain four-stop intersections. Signs saying “Do not stop for cross traffic” and other warnings have already been put up on Elm Street, the press release said.

Motorists are asked to use caution on Elm Street while people adjust to the new patterns.

Clarify details

According to the press release, the stop signs at the affected intersections were always intended to be a temporary measure. They were installed during the reconstruction of Elm Street in order to eventually reverse the direction of several stop signs.

Elm Street was the first street in downtown Frisco to be developed as part of the Rail District’s comprehensive redevelopment project. The next step is improvements to Main Street, which are scheduled to begin sometime after the city’s Fourth of July celebration.
