St. Cloud and George Streets looking west, 1970
The intersection of George and St. Cloud streets had a two-way east/west stop on St. Cloud with continuous north/south access on George Street. There were no medians that divided the St. Cloud and George Street intersections.

The St. Cloud Street and George Street intersection received a major facelift in 1999. The west side of George Street has been closed off creating a three way or T intersection. The intersection now has traffic lights in three directions with left-turn signals when turning south onto George Street and east onto St. Cloud Street. George Street is now a four lane street with a median for lane changes south of the intersection and has a concrete dividing median north of the intersection. St. Cloud Street also has a dividing median between the left (south) turn land and the right (north) turn lane.
