All-way stop added at Sutton, Ontario intersection of Dalton Road and Baseline Road

A new all-way stop was good to go Tuesday in the hopes of making a busy Sutton intersection safer.

York Region council approved the new traffic measure for its regional road to address the issue of impaired sight lines at the busy intersection beside Sutton high school.

The intent is to provide motorists turning on to Dalton Road from Baseline Road a clear view of traffic in all directions.

A study by an independent consultant concluded overall safety of the intersection could be improved by addressing the high number of southbound right-turning vehicles that could obstruct the view of motorists waiting to turn on to Dalton.

It is the second traffic signal fix for Dalton in just over a month, with the realigned stoplights at the new Sutton LCBO/Sobey’s entrance replacing the original location adjacent to the Tim Hortons.
