Work to synchronize the timing of traffic signals along U.S. 11E is now complete, according to Brad Peters, Greeneville Engineer and Public Works Director.
Progression Electric, Greeneville's signal maintenance contractor, has adjusted the timing of all the intersections, including the intersection of U.S. 11E and Rufe Taylor Road, which was completed on Monday.
In addition to the timing, signal heads were modified to allow better turning movement from the North and South Rufe Taylor Road approaches to 11E.
According to Peters, the Public Works Department has received more complaints about that intersection than any other in town.
The modifications are expected to remove conflicts that have been the source of most complaints.
The Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen authorized Cannon & Cannon, Inc. to perform a traffic study of the existing signalized intersections inside the city limits on 11-E, Peters recalled.
The company performed traffic counts at those locations, as well as an analysis of the existing controller equipment, Peters explained.
Neither the study nor the adjustments have anything to do with the new traffic signals being installed at the intersection of 11E/North Main Street/Kingsport Highway, Peters said.
