City traffic signals see improvement
City of Lebanon Public Works officials expect to have traffic signal synchronization nearing completion on Jefferson Avenue by Memorial Day.
The Lebanon City Council established the goal of synchronizing traffic signals on Jefferson in response to Customer Satisfaction Survey Lebanon residents completed in 2018. In the survey, traffic flow was one of the top issues customers requested the Council address.
Earlier this year, the Council approved a traffic signal study and the Missouri Department of Transportation, who is responsible for maintenance along Jefferson, has taken the results and implemented them. Over the last several months, MoDOT has been installing fiber along the route.
Mike Moore, Street Division superintendent, said many improvements have been made.
"This will ultimately lead to the ability to synchronize all the MoDOT maintained signals within the City," Moore said. "The public should be able to see much improvement with traffic flow on Jefferson now and we hope this will improve even more as the project is finalized."
Richard Shockley, Public Works director, said the City appreciates its partnership with MoDOT.
"This is a great example of two government agencies working with one another to improve the life of Lebanon citizens," Shockley said.
