Albany traffic signals get new controllers

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –You might have noticed a lot of traffic signals in Albany are being worked on, and Police directing traffic.

Tuesday crews were working at Whispering Pines and Dawson Road.  They're installing new control box and traffic signal controllers on 136 traffic signals across Albany and Dougherty County.

It's part of a state project to standardize all the traffic controllers in the state.

Dougherty County's work will cost three million dollars and is being paid for by the state.  Albany Traffic Engineering Manager Randy Casagrande said "It's state of the art, advanced controller. It will still operate the same ways that it always has, but it will just be far more reliable."

115 traffic signals in Dougherty County have been replaced already.  They hope to have the project finished by the end of October.

Engineers are asking drivers to slow down and use caution at the intersections where Police are directing traffic.
