Traffic Signal Upgrades

About the Project

Many of the existing traffic signals in the County have exceeded their intended service life. This project includes the reconstruction of outdated traffic signals to meet current Federal and County standards and specifications. Signal upgrade projects implement new technologies such as accessible pushbutton stations, CCTV for monitoring, video detection, and improved intersection lighting to improve safety, efficiency, and accessibility for all modes of travel.
