BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

The city of Blytheville will have some traffic changes starting Monday.

Ash and Walnut Streets, both one-way streets currently, will become two-way.

Mayor James Sanders said the Highway Department was notified of the changes Tuesday, giving workers a six-day notice.

The city posted flyers around town and used social media to get the word out about the traffic change.

Sanders said the highway department will place LED-lighted signs on the streets also.

They will remove the one-way signs and stop lights and add a four-way stop sign.

During the transition, Blytheville police will be out patrolling to help avoid any issues.

“If we see something that may be some sort of a traffic jam, just report that to the engineers or the people who are actually working on the roads,” Sanders said.

Blytheville police ask residents to watch carefully and be alert to avoid any accidents.
