TxDOT Atlanta District

For Feb. 2-8, 2020

Signals to be Upgraded at Five Mount Pleasant Intersections

Five intersections on Business US 271 East, Jefferson Avenue, in Mount Pleasant will have improvements made to their traffic control systems this year, according to plans approved in January by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

“Three of the projects will be at the Interstate 30 frontage roads and Farm to Market Road 2152, and the other two projects will be at Alexander Drive and Robert Nance Road,” said Rebecca Wells, district traffic engineer for TxDOT in Atlanta. “We will be upgrading the signal lights, which includes installing flashing yellow arrow lights and upgrading safety lighting at intersections. We will also be syncing the signals with other nearby signals to help improve traffic flow.”

TxDOT awarded the bid to Striping Technology of Tyler for these traffic control projects with a bid of $609,994. Work on the projects should begin in April of this year and take about six months to complete, Wells said.
