TRAFFIC NOTICE: New stop signs have been placed on 7th and E street heading West; stop signs heading North and South have been removed.

This morning (8/16/2023), our public works crews installed two new stop signs at the intersection of 7th and E Street. This new traffic pattern intends to improve traffic safety entering 7th (a collector street) and meet an industry standard.

Please exercise caution when driving along 7th street and give your fellow drivers time to accustom to the new traffic pattern. The city of Independence appreciates your patience and cooperation as we work to improve the safety of all our residents.
