The newest traffic signal in Layton City is currently being installed at Main Street (State Road 126) and Angel Street.
Main Street in Layton, being a state road, is governed and maintained by the Utah Department of Transportation.
The intersection had recently met the criteria to warrant a signal and UDOT was fortunately able to move up the installation process by more than a month.
Brett Slater, project manager with UDOT, said the project was originally not even slated to be advertised for a contractor until May.
“By utilizing an existing on call contract, our Central Traffic and Safety division has in place, we were able to start the work on this signal this week,” Slater said.
“Our intentions are to drill and pour the signal foundations this week, but the actual signal installation is dependent on when we can get Rocky Mountain Power out on site to give us a power hook up,” he said. “I am assuming within the next six weeks we should have a fully operating signal at SR-126 and Angel Street.”
There may be a gap in the project’s work, while waiting for the power installation.
No traffic delays are expected with the installation process.
This new signal will especially benefit customers of Kohl’s and other businesses in that area, plus the nearby Greenleaf and Mala subdivisions to the south.
