Two busy intersections in Steamboat Springs have been outfitted with new stop signs.

On Tuesday, City crews installed the new signs at the intersections of Whistler and Walton Creek roads and the eastbound U.S. Highway 40 exit ramp and Mount Werner Road.

To help drivers become accustomed to the new stop signs, the signs have temporarily been equipped with bright orange flags.

Temporary signage is also posted in front of the signs.

The city’s public works department evaluated the traffic counts and accident data at the intersections and determined the stop signs would make them safer and ease wait times at the existing stop signs.
