Expect Extra Traffic in Greeley With New Signal Light Project
Update: The project will now start Sept. 13 instead of Aug. 16
Greeley residents listen up. There are going to be some delays starting Aug. 16.
The Colorado Department of Transportation and Interface Communications are starting a new project in Greeley to install four new traffic signals. The new lights will be located at the intersection of Colorado Highway 257 and US Highway 34 on and off ramps in Greeley.
According to CDOT, the work will also include some minor striping changes. Heather Paddock, Regional Transportation Director, said that a study in 2017 showed the new signal system would make that particular on/off ramp safer for vehicles.
The goal for road closures is to keep the traffic impact as minimal as possible. In the project announcement, CDOT said that impacts are meant to be small most of the time. Some road closures and stops are to be expected, but working times for crews are generally set for Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
As always, obey traffic and speed laws in work zones and be cognizant of crews on foot that are working in construction areas.
