LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is placing special stop signs at the intersection of Woodrow Road and Slide Road meant to improve driver safety. The stop signs are 48" tall with flashing red lights, warning drivers of the oncoming stop.

TxDOT Public Information Officer Dianah Ascencio said the move is meant to improve driver safety.

"TxDOT as an agency has tried to improve safety all the way around from our roadways to intersections, so the flashing lights are just another safety measure alerting motorists of the oncoming stop," Ascencio said.

A traffic study done by TxDOT after numerous calls from concerned citizens concluded the roadway needed extra safety measures.

The construction will be completed later today.
