We received confirmation that the bid for traffic signals for the I-40/Canada Road Interchange is scheduled for approval by the Shelby County Commission.
The Public Works Committee of the Shelby County Commission (District 4 Commissioner Wyatt Bunker is the Chair) is considering the traffic signal at the Committee meeting starting at 9:30 a.m., Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at the Shelby County Courthouse.
The full Shelby County Commission is scheduled to approve the bid for the traffic signals at the regular meeting starting at 1:30 p.m., Monday, August 31, 2009. (We will confirm this is on the agenda.)
We encourage all Lakeland residents and persons who use the Interchange to contact the Shelby County Commissioners (www.ShelbyCountytn.gov) and ask them to PLEASE approve this bid!
The traffic signals will substantially improve safety, reduce congestion and accidents and reduce air pollution.
The traffic signals will substantially improve the response of the Shelby County Ambulance, the Fire Department and the Hazardous Response Unit to all areas of Shelby County.
We appreciate all of the time, work and effort put into this project by the Shelby County Public Works and Engineering Department personnel.
