Traffic signal installation

Two new traffic signals are going up along an increasingly-busy Wardleigh road.

One of the traffic lights will be installed at the intersection of H Avenue and the second light at the intersection of Arsenal Road. As part of the projects, pavement, drainage and electrical work will also need to be completed.

“We suffered one fatality and several ‘near misses’ this year at these intersections. It is critical we get these traffic signals installed as soon as possible. With the increasing volume of traffic along Wardleigh Blvd., these traffic signals are much needed for the safety of all who live and work at Hill AFB,” said Col. Jennifer Hammerstedt, 75th Air Base Wing commander.

Construction is scheduled to begin near the end of January 2018 for H Avenue and Wardleigh Road and will finish by the end of May 2018. Construction for the traffic signal at Arsenal Road and Wardleigh Road is scheduled to begin in May 2018 and finish by end of August 2018.

“We will do all we can to minimize traffic impacts during the construction periods; however, there will be times we will need to reduce traffic to one lane in each direction. We ask for everyone’s patience in advance as we make these much needed safety upgrades to the installation,” Hammerstedt said.

According to the 75th Civil Engineer Group, the reductions to one lane will be intermittent and not likely to last for entire days. Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists should obey all traffic laws during their commute throughout the construction area and help safely complete these projects with minimum delays.
