Drivers in Elkhart may want to avoid the intersection of Cassopolis and Bristol streets until later Thursday afternoon.
The Indiana Department of Transportation is rewiring traffic lights at the intersection and traffic has been backed up throughout the day Thursday, July 10, an INDOT representative said.
An Elkhart Police Department officer is on scene directing traffic. The intersection has been temporarily closed throughout the day, but otherwise traffic is just slow.
