Study on Roosevelt 4-Way Stop

The 4-Way STOP Warrant Study ordered by Roosevelt City concerning the 600 East 300 North intersection has been completed. The study, performed by Horrocks Engineers in Pleasant Grove, showed on page 7 that “the sight distance for the westbound approach when viewing traffic approaching from the right is inadequate due to hedges and a light pole obstructing the view...This means there is insufficient sight distance for drivers to turn left from the westbound approach without interfering with southbound vehicles.” As a result, the conclusion of the study is that a Multi-Way Stop-Controlled intersection is suggested due to the poor sight distance. “For the same reason,” states the study, “the existing stop signs on 300 North are justified” although if the sight distance problem could be addressed, the study says it is possible to NOT require a Multi-Way Stop.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
