North Olmsted traffic signals improving | News
North Olmsted city officials say the federal government has just approved money to upgrade the city's entire traffic signal system.
At aged intersections, the signals will be completely rebuilt; at more recently constructed intersections, the signals will be upgraded as needed.
Ideally the project will involve the replacement of the controller equipment, as well as the signal support poles, underground conduit, pull boxes, wiring, interconnect and upgrade the vehicle detection, software control systems and create a central control server for the system.
Due to the large number of signals and the significant cost involved, the project will be funded and constructed in two phases, addressing the Lorain Road corridor in Phase 1, and the other corridors and isolated intersections in Phase 2.
The City's contribution to the project is 20% of construction plus engineering costs.
