North Main Street Traffic Signal Improvements Project

  • A new traffic signal pole is being lifted and installed on it’s foundation (March 9, 2021)

  • Construction crews auger holes for new signal pole foundations at the intersection of North Main Street and Navajo Drive. (February 9, 2021)

  • A new traffic signal controller cabinet is being lifted and installed on its foundation (March 8, 2021)

Project Location:

Along North Main Street between Navajo Drive and Chaparral Street

Project Background:

Staff’s evaluation of the City’s collision data revealed that the segment of North Main Street between Navajo Drive and Chaparral Street had a high number of correctable collisions. The evaluation revealed that crashes may be reduced by installing countermeasures, specifically a traffic signal at the intersection of North Main Street and Navajo Drive and a median island to restrict the uncontrolled left turns from Chaparral Street to North Main Street.

The new state of the traffic signal  will  better serve patrons of the new award-winning  El Gabilan Library. Enhanced amenities including accessible pedestrian signals,  pedestrian countdown features, leading pedestrian intervals, and high-visibility  crosswalks will increase and encourage safe travels for pedestrians and motorists.

Project Timeline:
