Starting Monday August 18th, the current automatic stop lights will flash red in all directions - turning it into a four way stop. It'll be that way for six months.
Eric Kendall says he travels through the area often... and thinks the change is a good thing.
"Honestly, it's just kind of pointless to have a stoplight here. Just having flashing red lights, or even a stop sign really, would help out everybody with the flow of traffic, cause it doesn't get too busy around here so... There's really no need to hold up everybody for a few extra minutes whenever, you know, people can just stop and go."
The city hopes the flashing reds will do just that - make the intersection more efficient, and even cut down on carbon emissions from idling cars waiting for a green light.
