EFFINGHAM – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced today that the intersection of Illinois 32 and Bruce-Findlay Road, south of Sullivan in Moultrie County, weather permitting, will be controlled by a four-way stop starting Saturday, Oct. 9.
Traffic traveling on Illinois 32 will now have to stop at this intersection. Additionally, flashing beacons notifying motorists of the four-way stop have been installed, as well as rumble strips in the pavement approaching the intersection. The improvements will provide a safer intersection for motorists traveling Illinois 32 and Bruce/Findlay Road.
Drivers are urged to pay close attention to the changed conditions and new signage at the intersection, refrain from using mobile devices, always avoid distractions and buckle up at all times.
The safety upgrades are a result of IDOT working with local officials to perform a rigorous safety analysis following a crash involving a school bus and SUV in 2019 that resulted in the death of a 5-year-old boy and 56-year-old woman.
