Drivers in Fayetteville will soon have an easier time getting through a busy intersection near Butterfield Trail Elementary School.

Crews on Wednesday began installing traffic signal poles at Rolling Hills Drive and Old Missouri Road.

The work is part of a project that came about during a discussion about the reclassification of Rolling Hills Drive. The intersection becomes congested during the mornings and afternoons before and after school hours.

The project includes a new three-way traffic signal, markings for left- and right-turn lanes, and new stop bars on the pavement to indicate where drivers and bicyclists are required to stop in compliance with the signal.

Chris Brown, city engineer, has said the plan is to have the signal installed and operating before school starts in August.
