New Signal to be installed
Beginning this fall, the department will install a traffic signal at the intersection of SH 105 and the US 69 frontage road. For those of you who don't travel this section of highway, it is a four-way stop with LOTS of congestion during rush-hour traffic.
For many years, the intersection has worked quite well with stop signs. But with heavier traffic coming in on SH 105, engineers have decided a traffic signal would work much more efficiently. The new signal will really help out when Concord Road is widened from Lucas to US 69.
Allstate Signal & Construction, LLC was the low bidder. Work begins early this fall at a cost of about $183,000.
