The traffic signal at the intersection of George and Prince Edward streets in downtown Fredericksburg will be removed.
The signal, which is near Hurkamp Park, stopped working properly earlier this year. An engineering consultant concluded that it does not meet current warrants for a signal and that an all-way stop is appropriate. Signs have now been installed and associated pavement markings made for the all-way stop. The signal will continue to flash red on all approaches for approximately 10 days, and then the signal will be deactivated and the equipment removed.
By converting the traffic control at this intersection to an all-way stop, the City will be able to avoid the approximately $300,000 cost of installing a new signal there. For more information, please feel free to contact our Public Works Department at 540-372-1023.
