Busy Laredo intersection receives new changes

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - After weeks of construction, a heavy north Laredo intersection is now open to the traveling public.

The Bartlett intersection with Jacaman now has several lane changes.
Four lanes have been created prior to arriving at the intersection, two of which are turning lanes.

City of Laredo officials say the changes were needed after traffic was backed up during peak hours.

Traffic lights were also installed on the intersection of Bartlett and Hillside Road.
