2021 CITYWIDE TRAFFIC SIGNAL EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENTS
This project aims to upgrade signal equipment at 14 intersections within the City to decrease outages, update old technology, and increase safety. Not only will the traffic signals be upgraded, but reflective street signs and pedestrian and bicycle buttons will be replaced. Staff worked together with Econolite System to complete the order for equipment and materials. Materials and equipment for traffic signals usually take several months to manufacturer. The recent pandemic increased shipment delays as well. The materials are expected to arrive within 6 to 8 weeks.

Staff is aiming for this project to be bid in July 2021 and to start construction in late August or early September 2021. This project is budgeted in the Measure M Fund, Gas Tax Fund, and RMRA Fund with no impact to the City's General Fund.
