Temporary Light at Northside Dr. & E. Conway Drive- Powers Ferry Bridge Project

Monday, October 15, 2018 12:30 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Powers Ferry Bridge replacement project

To address congestion issues associated with the detour around the bridge closure, specifically, the anticipated increase in traffic in the Sutton Middle School traffic zone and on Northside Drive, our construction team implemented the following measures:

1.   Arranged for increased patrols and traffic enforcement in the affected detour areas, with special attention to the Sutton Middle School traffic zone. As staffing allows, APD Zone 2 will dispatch patrols to the school zone during pick-up and drop-off times to discourage speeding and other reckless driving behaviors.

2.   Installed temporary traffic signals at the intersection of Northside Drive and E. Conway Drive to control the flow of traffic in both directions.  The signal will remain in service for the duration the closure and detour.

    Is there any way for the temporary traffic light to become permanent? It has made such a positive impact on traffic flow and surely made it much safer to make left turns from both East Conway and West Conway onto Northside Drive. I was initially concerned that it would negatively impact the West Conway intersection since they're so close, however, I noticed this week when the traffic light was on "flash" mode what a big difference it makes to have a functioning light.
