Traffic travels through the intersection of West Lakeshore Drive and East Parker Boulevard at the southeast entrance to LSU’s campus on Thursday.

In an effort to improve safety at the intersection, the city-parish Traffic Engineering Division, in conjunction with LSU, has installed a temporary traffic signal at the intersection. The temporary signal will remain while the intersection is being studied and a permanent solution can be designed and constructed.

The new configuration will be monitored by both the city and LSU, and changes will be made as necessary.
