RICHMOND, Va. – The Department of Public Works will install new traffic signal equipment and make pedestrian upgrades at the intersection of North Huguenot Road and Cherokee Road. This installation will replace the current flashing beacon.
The project includes the following installations:
- Traffic signal mast arm poles with traffic signal heads and high visibility backplates
- These backplates are retro-reflective and therefore more visible to drivers in both daytime and nighttime conditions, helping to reduce potential crashes.
- Countdown pedestrian signals with push buttons
- Accessible ramps with sidewalk
- High visibility crosswalk markings
Work is scheduled to begin next week and weather permitting, is slated for completion in Spring 2024.
During construction, there will be intermittent lane closures. Please give our construction workers extra space and slow down when you see orange cones in the work zones.
This $218,000 project is funded through the Capital Improvement Program.
