However, the intersection was reviewed just last year.
A review of the intersection in May 2012 by the Traffic Improvement Association (TIA) of Michigan determined that it did not meet the criteria for a four-way stop.
Some of that criteria, according to a letter from TIA to Police Chief Gary Goss, included:
- Five or more reported crashes in a 12-month period that are susceptible to correction by a multi-way stop installation.
- The vehicular volume entering the intersection from the major street approaches (total of both approaches) averages at least 300 vehicles per hour for any eight hours of an average day.
- The combined vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle volume entering the intersection from the minor street approaches (total of both approaches) averages at least 200 units per hour for the same eight hours, with an average delay to minor-street vehicular traffic of at least 30 seconds per vehicle during the highest hour.
"It's time for a new survey," he said.
He said he expects a recommendation from the traffic engineer in January.
