Orange County has announced a new project to make neighborhoods safer.
Crews with the Public Works Traffic Engineering Division have begun replacing thousands of yield signs with stop signs throughout the county.
The project is part of a resolution adopted by county commissioners in December 2020 to enhance safety at intersections.
Starting in 2021, officials with Traffic Engineering Division identified 3,358 yield signs across the county to be converted to stop signs.
Crews have already converted nearly a third of the signs slated for replacement.
The county hopes to complete the project by October 2023.
