A damaged signal pole at the North State Line Avenue/Interstate 30 intersection has been removed for repairs, meaning all traffic there is being managed by stop signs.
Due to the way signals operate, both the north and south sides of the interchange signals will remain in all-stop flash mode until a full repair can be made, according to a news release from the Texas Department of Transportation.
The signal pole was struck by a vehicle early Friday and the impact severely damaged the signal pole, making it unstable.
Repairs could take up to two weeks, according to TXDOT.
"We have issued an emergency work order to make repairs and are exploring all options to turn this signal back on as soon as possible. However, this entire interchange will operate as all way stop until then," said Rebecca Wells, Director of Traffic Operations for TxDOT in Atlanta.
"Stop signs have been installed at the intersections by the Texarkana Maintenance Section. We are getting message boards from our signal contractor for the State Line approaches to give advance notice of the stop condition."
