A full-on stop at Franklin and 3rd
October 6, 2018
Drivers heading east or west on Franklin Street in Niwot need to be aware of newly installed stop signs. The now four-way stop at 3rd Avenue was included as part of the site plan review for the future Left Hand Animal Hospital at 304 Franklin St., formerly The Neighborhood Learning Center of Niwot.
Stop signs were already in place on 3rd Avenue where it intersects Franklin Street and for many years residents on the southern block of 3rd Avenue have experienced difficulties seeing approaching traffic from the east due to cars parked in front of the building.
New building owners Nancy Bureau and Katie Thomas were in agreement with the residents that safety concerns could be mitigated with the change to a four-way stop.
