Background Discussion
  • A request was received to install a multi-way stop at the intersection of 39th Street West and 13th Avenue West.
  • State law requires the installation of all traffic control devices, including STOP signs, to meet State standards adopted by the Florida Department of Transportation.  The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) published by the US Department of Transportation is the national standard for traffic control devices and has been adopted by the State and also the County's Land Development Code (LDC).
  • Staff conducted a field review and a multi-way stop warrant study in accordance with the MUTCD.  Based on the study, the intersection met the crash criteria for the installation of a multi-way stop.  As a safety measure, staff recommends the installation of multi-way stop signs at this location.
  • The cost to install traffic signs for this multi-way stop would be approximately $500.  The cost to install pavement markings would be approximately $350.  The total cost would be approximately $850.
