As the result of Ansborough Avenue traffic signal optimization signal timing on Ansborough Avenue has changed. Drivers should now experience less delays. We would like to remind the drivers to use caution as some lights will change at sequences they might not be used to. Drivers should not speed to make the best of the new timings. As always drive at speeds appropriate for the conditions.

Cars will face red lights in all four directions when the push button is pressed at two school crossings.Two new school signals have been installed at the intersections of Easton Avenue and W. 11th Street and Easton Avenue and Hammond Avenue, near Kittrell Elementary School. The signals now have a pedestrian button that, when pushed, causes the traffic lights to turn red in all four directions. This allows pedestrians – particularly students – to cross from all sides.
