Gregory Lane/Elinora Drive Traffic Signal Installation
Weekly Update - February 28, 2020
The much-anticipated traffic signal at Gregory Lane and Elinora Drive got one step closer this week when the City Council awarded the signal installation project to St. Francis Electric at their Feb. 24 meeting. The project includes a new traffic signal, a pedestrian crosswalk, ADA compliant curb ramps, sidewalks, curbs and gutters, and some minor landscaping. Given the long manufacturing time for the signal pole equipment, the project is anticipated to begin construction this summer and to be done in the fall.
This project is part of an ongoing effort to enhance safety for vehicles, bikes and pedestrians at this intersection. Vehicles at this intersection currently experience difficulty and delay exiting Elinora Drive onto Gregory Lane during the morning commute hours. A traffic signal will greatly improve access and safety. The traffic signal will also provide a controlled crossing location across Gregory Lane for students of Sequoia Elementary and Middle schools and Strandwood Elementary School.
