ST. LOUIS (AP) - One of the busiest, and most confusing, intersections in St. Louis will soon get a $2 million overhaul.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1tN7ALc ) reports that the nonprofit group Forest Park Forever has received the final donation necessary to upgrade the intersection of Skinker and Clayton Road, at the southwest edge of the park. The project will begin this summer.

The intersection is confusing because Skinker becomes McCausland Avenue, Oakland and Clayton avenues cut across, and Interstate 64 exit and entrance ramps are in the same place. City streets director Todd Waelterman says motorists, pedestrians and cyclists all complain about it.

The new design puts adds high-tech timed crosswalks, changes corners to reduce walking distance, adds a sidewalk and makes other upgrades.
