In a post on the @BillingsPD Twitter page, Billings Police Lt. Becker said the intersection of Midland and Mullowney "should be considered a four-way stop" until the repair of the traffic control lights is completed.

A Billings Police officer will handle traffic control at the intersection "when possible," according to the social media post.

No details on when the traffic control lights will be activated again at the Midland Road and Mullowney Lane intersection.
