The Elizabethtown Police Department is making residents aware of a change to an intersection in town. It was found out that the Kentucky State Highway Department decided that the intersection of North Mulberry Street and Helm Street no longer qualifies for a traffic signal. Therefore, in an attempt to prepare for the removal of the signal in three weeks, there is a flashing traffic signal and stop signs that will be in place until then. North Mulberry has a flashing yellow light, meaning thru traffic does not stop. Helm Street has a flashing red light and stop signs, meaning vehicles coming from that direction must stop and yield to Mulberry traffic. This is not a four way stop intersection, and the department urges extra caution as motorists adapt to the new traffic pattern.
