NEWPORT-In the end, complaints from small business owners to City Administrator Scott Collins and City Council members resulted in the return of a stoplight at the intersection of Broadway and Jefferson Avenue.

Lisa and Gary Gregg, owners of Custom Care Cleaners, at 213 Broadway, were upset when they saw the lights at the intersection had been "bagged", or taken out, with stop signs for people driving onto Broadway from the Jefferson Avenue side street.

The Greggs said businesses near the intersection, including the dry cleaning business, were suffering because of the difficulty in vehicles returning to the traffic stream on Broadway after parking in front of businesses along Broadway.
