Driving You Crazy: Intersection of Christy and Harris

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - A viewer says the intersection of Christy Lane and Harris Avenue is dangerous, accident-prone and in need of a four-way stop. The viewer says the intersection's proximity to two nearby schools increases the danger.

This is a Clark County intersection. In May 2012, Traffic 8 helped launch a study for a four-way stop. The county studied accident statistics and counted vehicles during peak and light travel times to get an accurate look at the traffic volume. County researchers also analyzed the direction with the most traffic.

They completed that traffic study last summer and determined the intersection does not meet the criteria for a four-way stop or traffic signal.

Most of the vehicles travel along Christy. The study also determined there were not enough accidents at the intersection to warrant a change. Sight distance also met requirements.

The county will not be installing a four-way stop at this intersection anytime soon, but Traffic 8 reached out to the county which plans to conduct another study in the fall.
