(KMOV) – Nothing frustrates some drivers more than a set of stoplights that are out of sync.

St. Louis City plans to fix that problem starting in the spring of 2011 on an eight-mile stretch of Olive Street starting at Tucker.

Crews will replace traffic control equipment at nearly 30 intersections that span from downtown St. Louis to Lindell and Skinker.

Next week, the city will put the $3.1 million project up for bid.

About 80 percent of funding comes from federal stimulus dollars, and the rest comes from the city. Once the work is complete, which should be by next summer, the city says there will be less stop-and-go traffic on Olive and Lindell.
