Commissioners delay traffic signal contract

May 24, 2005

Albany- City Commissioners hold off on a plan to make traffic flow more smoothly through town. Tuesday night, they tabled a vote on the first phase of a new traffic signal system.

That phase would be paid for with $1.8 million in federal money funneled through the state. It would upgrade all the signals from downtown to Slappey Boulevard.

"In that we'll have more detectors in the road that will sense the traffic and make adjustments accordingly, so hopefully this will be a better system than the one we have now," said Bob Alexander, director of engineering for the city.

Commissioners plan to look at the issue again at an upcoming special meeting.
