INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - People in a near-north side neighborhood want answers from Indy's department of public works on a plan that they say will put kids in harm's way.

DPW wants to temporarily remove some stop signs at 3 four-way-stop intersections on Central Avenue in the Meridian Kessler neighborhood, converting them to two-way stops during construction on IndyGo's Red Line.

But people are concerned because there are four schools in that area with about 1,400 students.

At a meeting Wednesday evening, residents asked DPW to reconsider their plan.

Nearly 400 people have signed a petition to keep the stop signs on Central Avenue.
