Because of a recent accident, the traffic signal at the intersection of Mills Park and Highway 183 will be operating on a flashing red light until repairs are completed.
A new panel box will need to be constructed which could take several days, said Dana Poindexter, assistant to the mayor.
"We are asking that everyone use extreme caution in this area," she said.
This intersection will be considered a four-way stop and requires all drivers to make a complete stop before proceeding through.
During school traffic hours of 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., city officials are requesting drivers take alternate routes, Poindexter said.
