(KMOV) One of the top ten "worst intersections" for foot and vehicle traffic in the City of St. Louis is about to get a major facelift.

The City of St. Louis has secured federal funding to make the intersection near Clayton and Skinker safer for drivers and anyone traveling to and from Forest Park.

Crews wil remove the half-century old equipment and replace it with countdown heads.

Todd Waelterman, City Streets Director, addressed the narrow sidewalks. "Right now we don't have a path. It's hard for people to find their way. There's only one little path to get here," Waelterman said.

The City of St. Louis says people traveling by foot or bicycle will appreciate the changes.

Construction is scheduled to begin next year.

The Federal Government will pay for 80 percent of the project and the remaining portion will be funded by the City of St. Louis.
