We are working to get a solution for a viewer who emailed us about the intersection of Deer Springs Way and Decatur Boulevard.

It is becoming a busy area of town, but along with the new homes and businesses, comes more traffic.

One of the left-hand turns lanes was eliminated, to make it safer for bus drivers to make u-turns, but one less lane, means other drivers might have to wait for one or even two cycles to make it through the light.

Fixing the problem is a little complicated. Las Vegas and North Las Vegas is divided at Decatur. We reached out to both jurisdictions with a proposal: changing the arrow to a flashing yellow. That way more vehicles could potentially get through the intersection in one light cycle,
