MnDOT installing all-way stop at 40th Avenue West and West Michigan Street

DULUTH, Minn. — MnDOT crews will be installing an all-way stop at the intersection of 40th Avenue West and West Michigan Street/southbound I-35 off-ramp next week.

The all-way stop is being installed due to safety concerns along with increased traffic from the 27th Avenue West detour. The current traffic control is all directions of traffic stop except for traffic heading south on 40th Avenue West heading across the I-35 overpass.

There is also a safety benefit to making the all-way stop permanent due to crash history indicating driver confusion at this intersection. The change should decrease driver confusion and reduce delay for motorists traveling on West Michigan Street/southbound I-35 off-ramp. As a result, the all-way stop is planned to be a permanent change.
