UPDATE: ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Three months after the traffic signal at Court Street and Park Avenue in downtown Rockford comes down, city officials decide it's staying down for good.

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - The city of Rockford shuts down traffic lights at the intersection of West State and North Court streets in front of the city's Public Safety Building.

The intersection will instead be controlled by stop signs to determine if the lights can be removed permanently. The lights will be off for 60 days to complete the study.
