I have a question about the 7476 IC JK Flip Flop
is it restricted to do down and up counters?

because I got creative and thought 'is it possible to modify the next state?'
an example of the state table that I have in mind is this:

Now to make it relevant to using it to traffic lights, the reason each Next state only has 1 Active HI Bit is because i will connect it to RED, GREEN, and YELLOW LED's respectively.

I know I have options like using 4017 IC, but I will also be using a 7 segment, so, that option is not viable.

Anyone Help?
