The Public Works Committee of the Shelby County Commission (District 4 Commissioner Wyatt Bunker is the Chair) approved the bid for the traffic signal at the I-40 and Canada Road Interchange.
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.
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 and the Shelby County Commissioners.
After approval of the bid, the traffic signals should be operational by early 2010.
