New 4-Way Stop Implemented Near Marshfield Middle School

8th and Palmetto intersection in Marshfield

MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – There is a new 4-way stop at 8th Street and Palmetto Avenue, near Marshfield Middle School. Previously, there were stop signs on 8th but not Palmetto.

This intersection has been the subject of concern for drivers, especially during busy school pickup and drop-off times.

Wisconsin 4-way stops can be tricky business, as comedian Charlie Berens illustrated in a recent skit. The rule is: If you are the first vehicle to arrive at a four-way stop, stop completely and then proceed. If you are unsure whether you are the first vehicle to arrive, yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on your right.
