Whitehall plans to install new fiber optic technology on City traffic signals beginning in late 2019. This new technology, which meets the guidelines set forth to also receive funding under the Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Program, will allow Whitehall’s signals to be connected to a regional traffic signal network for central Ohio.
These improvements will help to better move traffic along at a better pace while improving air quality and reducing fuel consumption. Signals will remain in operation and minimal traffic disruption is expected, although brief lane closures may occur while cable and equipment are being installed.
Questions about the project can be directed to Zachary Woodruff, Director of Development and Public Service, who can be reached at Zach.Woodruff@Whitehall-oh.us.
