P21173 – Traffic Signal Enhancements

Project Status:

Construction is scheduled to begin in May 2024 and be completed by the end of August. Work will happen overnight between 6:00 pm and 7:00 am.

This project is being coordinated by ODOT. Additional information can be found on the ODOT project webpage. The contract was awarded to Northstar Electrical Contractors.

Project Description:

The purpose of this project is to reduce fatal and serious intersection crashes by upgrading the equipment and using a combination of technology and visual enhancements.

Signal enhancements may include:

  • Replacing signal heads where needed.
  • Installing reflective back plates behind the signals.
  • Installing countdown signs for pedestrians so that they know how much time they have to cross safely.
  • Adding flashing yellow left turn arrows.

These safety enhancements will make it easier for drivers to see and understand the traffic signals and for pedestrians to know when it is safe to cross the street.

Signal improvements will include intersections on Centennial Blvd., Mohawk Blvd., Olympic St., Pioneer Pkwy., Q St., Harlow Rd., Gateway St., 42nd St., MLK Blvd., 14th St., and 5th St.
