BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

The Arkansas Department of Transportation is surveying a stop light in Batesville to see if any changes could be made to improve traffic.

The light is at the intersection of Broad and Boswell Streets, in the downtown area. 

Batesville Mayor Rick Elumbaugh said the light right now is on a timer, which will sometimes cause traffic to back up or a driver to sit at the light for an extended time when there is no other traffic.

The mayor said several citizens have asked if something can be changed about the light, so he requested ARDOT to do the study.

The light could be upgraded to a sensor-activated system or be eliminated and replaced with stop signs.
