The city of Independence says a new stoplight is on the way for the busy intersection of Lee’s Summit Road and 42nd Street near Cracker Barrel – but it’s going to take awhile.
A wreck took out the old streetlight a few weeks ago. A four-way stop went up, and then this week a temporary stoplight was installed.
The company that makes the pole needed doesn’t keep them on hand, the city says. It has to be manufactured. It could be another two months before it’s delivered and installed.
