The changes at Highway 30 and County Road 1 Include:

• Oversized stop signs will be placed on both sides of the road on the four roads that approach the intersection
• Stop signs on both sides of Highway 30 in each direction will have LED lights
• Stop ahead signs on all four approaches
• Stop bar painted at the intersection on all four approaches
• “Stop Ahead” painted on road approaching the intersection on all four approaches

Last week MnDOT installed digital message signs on the road alerting drivers that the change is coming on April 4.
