During the construction of a Roundabout project on Brookswood and Murphy Rd. two additional stop signs were placed (“Temporarily”) on Baker Rd. to accommodate the detoured traffic from Brookswood. Upon completion of the project Deschutes County chose to leave the two stop signs on Baker Rd.

This decision is in violation of state law. It does not meet any of the criteria of the Uniform Traffic Control Devises for the State of Oregon.

Baker Rd. is the major access road into and out of Deschutes River Woods. The two stop signs on Baker cause traffic to back up on Baker during certain times of the day. At other times it causes unnecessary stops for the hundreds of citizens who use Baker Rd.

Unfortunately none of the government engineers will admit that one of their fellow engineers made a mistake.
