City of Dubuque reminds motorists of new traffic control pavement

Posted: Updated:

A new traffic control pavement marking was incorporated to two downtown Dubuque streets last summer. The City of Dubuque wants to remind motorists to note the change and stop where directed by new signals at the four intersections featuring diagonal crosshatch markings.

The purpose of the markings is to force traffic to stop at a red traffic signal at a distance before the intersection, which allows truck traffic adequate space to safely make turns on to that street from the right of the intersection, according to the city.

The diagonal crosshatch markings were added to the intersections of Ninth Street and two intersections on Eleventh Street as part of last summer's one-way to two-way conversion of those streets.

Motorists who do not stop their vehicle where directed and instead stop in the crosshatch area are subject to enforcement by the Dubuque Police Department.
