More drivers on Lawrence Road are now getting the green light to turn onto Kell West.
The intersection is more congested now that more businesses have opened on Lawrence Road.
So TxDOT and Wichita Falls crews spent the morning making a change at the intersection that will ease the traffic backup.

"Since we have a way to change that and facilitate more traffic moving through this corridor quicker and easier, we have put in the double left turn lane," says Adele Lewis, TxDOT public information officer.

"It should improve the intersection quite a bit as far as the functionality of it during those peak times," adds Mark Beauchamp, traffic superintendent with the City of Wichita Falls.

Officials say they wanted the new signals and turn lanes in place before the blast of winter weather arrives as well as holiday shopping season.
