Intersection of Shaulis Road and IA 21 (Hawkeye Road) in Waterloo recently changed from a 3 leg to a full 4 leg intersection.  This location has been experiencing traffic accidents. Crashes have been happening while a driver who is waiting to make a left turn is  met by an unsuspecting driver causing a rear-end collision. City of Waterloo and Iowa Department of Transportation are working together to find a solution, possibly adding left turn lanes. Meanwhile please be more careful when going through this intersection.
