Flemington getting new traffic signal, sidewalks

JOHN RISHEL/THE EXPRESS

New sidewalks and the replacement of a traffic signal at the intersection of Woods Avenue and High Street in Flemington have vehicles crawling through the borough, as one lane of the roadway on High Street is closed to traffic. The traffic signal is an optical device that lets the signal know when emergency vehicles have to travel through the intersection, said PennDOT supervisor Michael Pase. The new signal will also have radar detection and a battery backup in case of emergency. The $600,000 PennDOT improvement project also includes handicap ADA compliant curb ramps and drainage improvements. The project is expected to be completed in August.
