QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- Some intersections with yield signs in Quincy will soon have stop signs instead.

City council approved changes to several intersections including 7th and Lind, which will become a four-way stop.

City engineers said they're making the switch to this and other intersections because driving habits in general and visibility at the intersections have changed.

"The line of vision was was better and over the years has changed our traffic patterns have changed in that neighborhood. So you have an instance where you have more higher chances for accidents, and the stop sign is definitely warranted over using a yield sign," said Director of Utilities and Engineering Jeffrey Conte.

The other intersections where stop signs will replace yield signs are 20th and Jersey and 13th and Ohio.

City council also authorized $114,000 to go toward redeveloping the section of South 4th street near The Patio restaurant

They also approved an additional credit for two months for city liquor licenses, and gave Klingner and Associates the green light to start work on a capital infrastructure improvement plan that should not exceed $250,000.
