City Intersection Receives an Upgrade

Contractors will be installing equipment at the traffic signal located at E. Continental Boulevard and S. Kimball Avenue on Thursday, March 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., to create the City’s first “Smart Intersection.”

The traffic signal will receive upgraded vehicle detection and a new controller to aid with data collection and incident monitoring as a part of the City’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) initiative.

Upon implementation, City engineers and technicians will be able to receive alerts as soon as an issue arises with traffic signal equipment or intersection operations. They will also be able to document the change in traffic patterns while travel restrictions and guidelines are in effect.

These devices are being loaned to the City temporarily for a pilot implementation, free of charge.
