Changes are coming to a Tampa road after cars have hit signs, ruined medians and crashed into homes.

Neighbors have told us their complaints about the Highland Avenue and West Violet Street intersection many times.

In December, we told you about some major changes to that intersection. The State and City of Tampa added signal heads, reflective pavement markings and flex posts.

Those changes didn't help. In fact, we saw pictures of a car that crashed into those signs just weeks later.

The City of Tampa will now be installing a stop sign, hoping to help the issues. The change is a result of a recent study.

We'll let you know when the new sign is installed.
