Stop signs replace signal amid work


Starting today, an overhead traffic control device at the intersection of North George and West Liberty Street will be temporarily replaced with four-way stop signs as work proceeds on the installation of a new traffic device, according to a memo from the city.

“The installation is part of the $319,000 N. George Street West Liberty Street intersection improvement project,” the statement continues.

The work - being completed by Central Paving Inc. based in Frankfort - consists of removing existing traffic lights to make way for new poles and devices.

“The new features will include new audible enabled pedestrian control along with new traffic pattern controls. The intersection has been reconfigured to eliminate the westbound slip ramp to Liberty Street which will allow a new bus lane to be created to enhance the recently opened Centro operated Liberty Street bus shelter,” a statement continues.

The work is expected to be finished around Dec. 11.
