About the Project
Work at this intersection will include removal of existing signal heads and video detection from Dominion Virginia Power poles and will install new signal equipment including decorative traffic signal poles, pedestrian signals and a new cabinet. Signage and pavement markings will be replaced as needed, including new high-visibility crosswalks. This project will improve pedestrian accessibility by updating signal timings, providing ADA-compliant crossings and installing pedestrian-scale lighting.
