CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

As part of a long-term plan the City of Cedar Rapids is making changes to downtown streets.

Starting Tuesday, June 30, changes are coming to the intersection of 3rd St and 5th Ave SE.

The traffic signals located at the will shift to continuous flashing red operation for both directions. Treat it like a four-way stop.

The flashing red light is a transition until the signals are removed.

According to the City, several downtown intersections may no longer need traffic lights, and the City is continuing to study other locations for removal.
