WARSAW — To the casual passerby, the traffic signals at the intersection of Buffalo and Center streets look pretty normal from a distance.
But there are external and internal issues that need to be upgraded.
The existing poles are leaning, and the wiring and controller box is outdated, according to a news release issued by the city.
As a result, the city plans to replace the poles, signals and the technology used to control the traffic lights. Weather permitting, beginning Monday, Sept. 16, traffic signal upgrades will begin at the intersection.
During this project, traffic at the intersection of Center Street and Buffalo Street will be controlled by a four-way stop. All sidewalks will be closed around the immediate intersection.
This project involves the installation of new black powder-coated poles, a new controller box, and new ADA ramps at the sidewalks.
Larger, lit street name signs and new LED street lights will be installed.
This project is expected to last one month, weather permitting.
Motorists are encouraged to use caution near this intersection during the duration of the project.
No other intersections will be affected.
