SDDOT to Install All-Way Stop Sign in Langford

For Immediate Release:  Friday, March 23, 2018

Contact: Kristi Sandal, Public Information Officer, 605.773.7179


LANGFORD, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation is converting the intersection of Highway 27 and Main Street in Langford to an all-way stop control. 

Currently the intersection is only controlled with a stop sign on Main Street for eastbound traffic. The SDDOT signing crew will be placing additional stop signs on Highway 27 for northbound and westbound traffic. Stop bars will be installed when the weather is warm enough to paint the markings.

Weather permitting, the signing crew will install the all-way stop signs on Wednesday, April 4.

When drivers approach the new all-way stop, they are advised to follow these right-of-way rules:

  • The first vehicle to the intersection has the right-of-way ahead of any vehicle that has not yet arrived;
  • When two or more vehicles reach an intersection at the same time, the vehicle to the right has the right-of-way;
  • The vehicle with the right-of-way may move straight ahead or, if legal and after signaling, turn left or right; and,
  • When two facing vehicles approach an intersection at the same time, both drivers can move straight ahead or turn right. If one driver is going straight while the other wants to turn left, the driver who wants to turn left must wait. The driver who is traveling straight ahead has the right-of-way.

Motorists are asked to watch for crews and equipment working at the intersection during the installation.
