MIDLAND - If you're driving out in the Midland area, you can expect to see some big changes on certain roads near Interstate 20.

Starting on Monday, all four service road intersections at Highway 158 and FM 715 will become four way stops.

The traffic signals there will be flashing red.

By Wednesday, the lights will begin the normal red-yellow-green sequence.

Crews began installing lights at the intersection a few months ago.

TXDOT says the signals will help traffic flow and make the area safer for drivers.
