The intersection of North Eshman Avenue and Hazelwood Road is currently a 2-way stop, but after Monday’s Clay County Board of Supervisors meeting, it will soon become a 4-way stop.
District 1 Supervisor Lynn Horton said he expected the 4-way intersection to be implemented by the second week in October.
