Crews will be installing a new traffic signal at the intersection of Washington and Clinton Streets on Friday, Aug. 26, 2016.

Drivers will notice temporary stop signs at the intersection as the new traffic signal lights are installed. Crews expect to begin work at 9 a.m. and to be finished by 3 p.m.

The traffic signal installation is part of ongoing work on Washington Street as part of a larger Downtown and Pedestrian Mall Streetscape Plan. The project will give Washington Street a fresh, updated look while also updating aging underground infrastructure.

People can access their favorite businesses on Washington Street throughout construction. All businesses are open.
