Removal of Traffic Signal at George and Prince Edward Streets


The traffic signal at the intersection of George and Prince Edward Streets, near Hurkamp Park, stopped working properly earlier this year. In January, the City hired an engineering consultant to study whether the signalized intersection was warranted or if the signal could be decommissioned and another method of traffic control could be implemented. The consultant has completed its assessment and has concluded that the intersection does not meet current warrants for a signal and that an all way stop is appropriate at the intersection. Signs have now been installed and associated pavement markings made for the all way stop. The signal will continue to flash red on all approaches for approximately ten days, then the signal will be deactivated and the equipment removed. 

By converting the traffic control at this intersection to an all way stop, the City will be able to avoid the approximately $300,000 cost of installing a new signal there. For more information, please feel free to contact our Public Works Department at 540-372-1023.
