Downtown traffic signal study to start

Published 6:44am Sunday, January 6, 2013

The City of Albert Lea contracted Bolton & Menk to conduct a study of the traffic signals on Broadway Avenue as part of infrastructure and streetscape project. The firm looked specifically at the corners of Broadway and Clark Street and Broadway and William Street. As a result of this study, Bolton & Menk are recommending the removal of the traffic signals at both locations and replacing them with all-way stop signs.

In order to remove the traffic signals, the city is required to perform a removal study. In this study, the signal heads need to be flashing or covered for a minimum of 90 days. The study will start Monday.
