Beginning Monday, April 11, traffic signals at the intersections of Chadbourne and Washington streets, and Martin Luther King Drive and 14th Street will be phased out.

The City Council on April 5 agreed to remove the signals because traffic counts no longer warrant them.

For the first 30 days of the 90-day removal process, a flashing red light will stop traffic in all directions. Afterward, the signal heads will be covered and non-operational for the remainder of the 90-day removal period.

At that time, north-south traffic on Chadbourne will no longer be controlled by a traffic signal, while east-west traffic on Washington will be controlled by a stop sign. Likewise, east-west traffic on 14th Street will no longer be controlled by a signal, while north-south traffic on MLK will be controlled by a stop sign.

Once the 90-day period has ended, the signals will be removed at both intersections.
