Delaware intersection's traffic signals replaced

Work began last week to update the traffic signals at the intersection of North Sandusky Street and Central Avenue in downtown Delaware.

The $224,000 project will remove the outdated traffic signals at the intersection and replace them with updated signals, said Delaware Community Affairs Coordinator Lee Yoakum.

Sidewalks at the intersection also will be replaced.

The new signals will include a left-hand turn signal and will be mounted on mast arms similar to signals at other Sandusky Street intersections.

At least one pedestrian crossing on both Central Avenue and Sandusky Street will remain open during the period of construction. General construction hours are set for 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The project is funded by the Ohio Department of Transportation and is locally managed by the city of Delaware's engineering department.

In addition, Central Avenue will be closed east of North Sandusky Street on Wednesday, Dec. 12, for repairs.

The road will be closed from the Point intersection to Lake Street. A detour using William and Lake streets will be in place from 9 a.m. until work is complete.
