Stop Sign Proposed for Bayview Road and Baywater Avenue

A public hearing will be held on the subject on March 12.

With an eye toward public safety, the Southold town board will consider a local law that would green light a stop sign at the intersection of Bayview Road and Baywater Avenue in Southold.

Currently, there is a yield sign at the intersection, which is located near the Southold Fire Department substation.

A public hearing on the matter will be held at a town board meeting on March 12, which begins at 7 p.m.

The existing yield sign, which is located on Baywater Avenue heading east at the intersection with Bayview Road, would be replaced with a stop sign. 

Do you think the intersection at Bayview Road and Main Bayview in Southold is unsafe? Do you believe a stop sign would help improve public safety? Let us know in the comments section.

don't see the need as on-coming traffic is clearly visible when approaching the yield sign, unless residents have noticed drivers carelessly proceeding when there is on-coming traffic......but there is a more urgent need to do something at the intersection of North Bayview and Dayton where cars going into Harbor Lights often cut off traffic approaching on North Bayview (especially in the summer). No Stop sign, not even a Yield sign. It would be sad if it takes a serious accident before the Town takes any action.

The intersection itself is not unsafe for drivers. I make that right turn all the time but I do make a full stop before the yield sign because I worry that pedestrians may be on the shoulder. If you are busy looking for the traffic on your left you may turn withoutl looking right. Caution is needed at this spot.
