The proposed project includes a coordinated traffic signal system at the intersection of Union Street with Springdale Road and Papermill Road. Due to the proximity of the two intersections the proposed traffic signals will be coordinated to function as one intersection. The work includes minimal disruption to the existing pavement with minor widening, guardrail improvements, and modifications to the pavement markings. The project is expected to provide safety improvements at the intersections along with reductions in traffic backups on Springdale Road. The improved traffic flow on Springdale Road and Papermill Road will result in minor changes to traffic flow on Union Street.
The design and environmental permitting for the work is expected to be completed by the Spring of 2019. Funding for construction is still to be determined.
