A north Medford street is closed through Sept. 8 while crews realign an intersection.

Table Rock Road is closed between Merriman and Midway roads for the project, which will alter the intersection of Table Rock and Merriman roads. Detours are available during the closure.

The $1 million project will create a four-way intersection and turn Table Rock into a continuous road.

Drivers headed north on Table Rock from Highway 99 now approach a stop sign where Table Rock and Merriman form a fork. The stop sign is meant only for those turning left on Merriman. Table Rock drivers may continue on their way to the right without stopping, but it's not immediately clear to drivers who are new to the intersection because of the way Table Rock suddenly veers to the right after the stop sign.

The intersection improvement is one of 17 transportation projects the Medford City Council approved in 1996. City revenue will fund the project.
