From the City of New Rochelle:
The City of New Rochelle will provide an informational meeting to discus the proposed upgrade of traffic signal equipment on Main Street, Huguenot Street and Pelham Road.
The meeting will be held at Room B1, in City Hall at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14.
The City with the assistance of Lochner Engineering, P.C., the state Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration is developing design plans and specifications for the replacement of existing outdated traffic signal equipment with a state-of-the-art traffic signal system for the entire US 1 and Pelham Road corridors in the City of New Rochelle. The proposed project will provide the following improvements:
- Improved pedestrian accommodations at signalized intersections
- Remote control of traffic signal timings and sequencing from a central office located at City Hall or the City Yard
- Vehicle sensors to provide better response to vehicle flow
- Video cameras to provide observation of traffic operations which will help the New Rochelle Traffic Engineer improve traffic flow.
The purpose of the meeting is to obtain comments on the project from New Rochelle individuals, groups, officials and associations.
This public information meeting is part of the continuing effort by New Rochelle, the state Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration to encourage public input into the development of transportation projects.
Project documentation is available for review at the Office of the City Clerk, 515 North Ave.; the Department of Public Works, 515 North Avenue; or the New Rochelle Public Library, 1 Library Plaza.
