Signals at Belt Highway and Pear Street malfunctioning

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – The signals at U.S. Route 169 (Belt Highway) and Loop 29 (Pear Street) in St. Joseph are not functioning as programed and are now flashing red in every direction. The control box for the signal will need to be replaced and the signal could remain in the flashing red configuration through tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 29, or longer if the part is not available.

Until the signal is repaired and working properly, motorists should treat the intersection as a four-way stop and be especially cautious when making cross-traffic turning movements.

All work is weather-permitting, and schedules are subject to change.
