BATTLE GROUND — The intersection at Northeast 72nd Avenue and 239th Street northwest of Battle Ground will change from a two-way stop to an all-way stop on Thursday.

The intersection previously only required north and southbound drivers on Northeast 239th Street to stop as they approached 72nd Avenue.

According to a Tuesday news release from Clark County Public Works, the change “will improve safety and mobility at this intersection. Requiring all vehicles to stop at the intersection will help reduce the risk of collisions and crash severity.”

Temporary measures will be in place beginning Thursday to help alert drivers to the traffic pattern changes. These include high visibility flags on all new stop and stop-ahead signs for two months; orange “traffic revision ahead” signs, for two months; and portable electronic message signs on Northeast 72nd Avenue for two weeks.

Drivers may notice an increased police presence in the area as they assist with traffic control.
