A busy downtown intersection was converted to an all-way stop this week.

City crews on Tuesday added new stop signs on West Avenue at the intersection of Spring Street in front of the new TheatreSquared building.

Officials said after a recent review of vehicle counts, speeds, turning patterns and visibility, it was determined that creating an all-way stop would increase safety at the intersection.
