For Immediate Release
Traffic Signal Removal at Kimbrough and McDaniel
On Monday, June 25, 2012, the City of Springfield will begin the process of removing the traffic signal on Kimbrough Avenue at McDaniel Street by flashing the signal heads yellow to Kimbrough and red to McDaniel.
After careful analysis following the Manual on Uniform TrafficControl Devices (MUTCD) practices, it has been determined that the signal at the intersection is no longer warranted and due to its low traffic volume and its vicinity to neighboring signals.
Following standard practice for removal of a traffic signal, the signal heads will remain in flash for four weeks followed by being covered for an additional four week period, at the end of which a final decision regarding removal will be made. Unless unforeseen concerns for operation of this signal are identified, the signal will be removed completely the week of August 20, 2012.
