Signal at Division & Packer in Full Operation

The new traffic signal on Division Street and Packer Road began full operation this morning. The signal had been in flashing operations since April 2, 2010. Final construction activities including paving, pavement striping and cleanup will continue until late April.

This signalization project is needed to accommodate an increase in traffic on Packer Road and to help southbound truck traffic turn left onto Division Street. The project is funded through the ¼-cent Sales Tax for Capital Improvements 2007-2010 program.  Hartman & Company is the contractor for the project.
