New traffic signals will be coming to Normal

Local News

NORMAL, Ill. — The Town of Normal is looking to upgrade a street and implement new traffic signals.

On Monday night the council approved a resolution to resurface the road at the intersection of College Ave. and University St.

Leaders say it is one of the busiest intersections in town and keeping it smooth is a priority.

In addition, they will be removing the traffic signals at that intersection and replacing them with new audible accessible signals. The signals will help cater to the disable community in the area.

“We’re very excited,” said Ryan Otto, Normal Town Engineer. “We think it is an outstanding opportunity to be able to partner with ISU, as well as, provide service to the community. We will help make it safer for the folks to use our systems, sidewalks and our crossings at College and University.”

Otto says this is the second audible signal in the area as there is one on the corner of Vernon Ave. and Towanda Ave.

Leaders say we could expect to see more of these audible signals as the town continues to upgrade.
