The flashing light above the Beattie Corner has been replaced by enlarged stop signs with red blinking lights.

The flashing light that hung over the Beattie Corner for years is gone.

To replace it, enlarged stop signs with blinking red lights and reflective covering were installed on Kansas Highway 99 last Thursday at the intersection. The signs include markers notifying drivers that traffic on U.S. Highway 36 does not stop.
