Signals to Be Upgraded at 28 Area Intersections


Dozens of area intersections will be getting upgrades to their signal light systems. Here is a list of the upcoming work in Northeast Texas.

Media Release:

Dozens of intersections in Northeast Texas will have improvements made to their traffic control systems later this year, according to plans approved in April by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“We will be making various upgrades to the signal lights at 28 intersections. Many of these will include adding reflective features for increased visibility,” said Atlanta District Director of Transportation Operations Rebecca Wells.

Intersections to receive improvements include the entire US 59 corridor in the Atlanta District. “This will allow for consistency for the traveling public through the district,” Wells added.
Highway Intelligent Traffic Solutions, Inc. of Cedar Hill, TX was awarded the contract for these projects with a bid of $504,893.

Work on the projects should begin this August and take about five months to complete, Wells said.
