But, after community members raised concerns about an increase in wrecks in that spot, the city of Jonesboro looked into ways of improving safety.

A resolution to turn the intersection into a four-way stop passed the Metropolitan Area Planning Committee Tuesday night.

The plan will go before city council for discussion next.
