Left-turn signals coming to Nicholson and Lee intersection

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Crews were out early Thursday to work on new traffic lights for a known problem intersection south of LSU.

The intersection of Nicholson Drive and Lee Drive will get lights that include left turn arrows for both directions on Nicholson.

Officials said the changes will be monitored over a 30-day period to decide if they will help until bigger changes can be made to the intersection.

The plan includes left turn lanes and extra through lanes. Construction for those additions is expected to start sometime next year.
