DOTD to convert LA 593 @ LA 138 intersection in Morehouse Parish to all-way stop

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces plans to convert the intersection of LA 593 and LA 138 in the Village of Collinston, Morehouse Parish to an all-way stop.

This new traffic configuration will go into effect on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, weather permitting.

The intersection is currently controlled by a yield sign on the southbound approach of LA 138.

This change comes as the result of a traffic engineering study conducted by DOTD. This study analyzed traffic data and crash history, as well as possible countermeasures that could be implemented to potentially improve safety at the intersection.

The recommendation of that study was to convert the intersection to an all-way stop condition. Studies have shown that converting a yield controlled intersection to an all-way stop has the potential to reduce crashes at certain locations.

Safety reminder:

DOTD reminds you to drive caution and please be on the lookout for crews and equipment as this work is underway to install signage at the intersection.
