Traffic signals go online Tuesday at Cedar Lake and old Highway 67

Traffic signals that were recently installed on the old Highway 67 intersection at Cedar Lake and Hudson-Krohn roads will be activated Tuesday morning at 9.

The signals replace a flashing four-way stop light that had been at the intersection. Traffic counts show that about 10,000 vehicles use the intersection on an average day, which prompted the city to install the signals and widen the intersection as part of a $165,000 improvement project.

The new signals, which feature left turn arrows, will use pre-approach sensors in the asphalt to control the lights. The city plans to monitor the traffic flow at the intersection and will adjust the timing of the traffic signals as warranted.
