Changes coming to Mt. Carmel intersection

MT. CARMEL, IL (WFIE) - Flashing red lights at a busy intersection In Mt. Carmel are coming down. 

Crews will be removing the lights at 6th and Market. They'll install stop signs instead. 

Officials say the lights are old and are difficult to maintain.

City leaders considered turning the four-way stop into a two-way stop, but decided against it.  

Council members are now looking at removing flashing lights at other intersections in the business district -  at Market and 3rd, 4th and 5th Streets.
