Traffic Lights to be Replaced in Cape



Some changes are coming to certain intersections in Cape Girardeau. The intersection of Pacific and Independence Street will be removed in favor of a two-way stop in which Independence will have the right-a-way. The intersection of Sprigg St. and Morgan Oak will also be getting stop signs in place of the traffic light. These changes are made based on the low traffic and accident rates at these intersections, and the lack of battery back-ups for the traffic lights.
