TRAFFIC SIGNALS AT CANADA ROAD AND I-40 INTERCHANGE: We were recently advised the traffic signals for the I-40/Canada Road interchange have been bid and are under review by the Tennessee Department of Transportation. This is for "temporary" traffic signals that will regulate traffic until the new interchange is constructed.
After review and approval by the Tennessee Department of Transportation, the bids will be awareded by the Shelby County Commission. Assuming the bids are reviewed and approved by TDOT within 30 days, there is a good chance the bids could award the bids for traffic signals in February.
Based on this schedule, we estimate the interchange should have traffic signals by this Summer.
This project is funded by a federal grant administered by Shelby County. We appreciate the efforts of Shelby County in expediting this project.
CANADA ROAD/HIGHWAY 70 INTERSECTION TRAFFIC SIGNALS: We were recently advised that the bid schedule for the traffic signals at this intersection has been moved up to June, 2009.
There are so many varying factors on this project, we can't really estimate a completion date until later, but at least the project is currently scheduled to be bid in June rather than October.
We will provide updates as soon as we hear any information on these projects.
