Traffic Signal Updates on Main Street

The traffic signals at Main & Front Street and Main & Liberty Street have been turned off and put on stop sign control as contractors work to install new signal infrastructure on Front Street as part of the Downtown Streetscape Project. 

Southbound traffic on Main Street crossing the tracks will not stop at Liberty. Northbound vehicles on Main Street will have a stop sign right before the train tracks, and then will have free-flow access across the intersection of Front Street.

The City will be monitoring the flow of traffic throughout this time to determine if any changes need to be implemented. The stop signs will be in place for the duration of the work over these next several weeks. For more information, see the City’s website.
