According to District 9 Deputy Director James Brushart, crews from Perram Electric will be improving a series of traffic signals between South Point and Chesapeake. The signals to be replaced are located between the intersections of County Road 120N (Burlington-Macedonia Road) and County Road 144 (Charley Creek Road).

“As part of the signalization project, the contractors will be upgrading the signal timing and providing interconnection and coordination of the signals in this section of the U.S. 52 corridor,” said Brushart.

Throughout construction, there should be little to no impact to traffic, and throughout the entire project, traffic will be maintained at all times in both directions. However, motorists are advised to exercise additional caution when traveling through the project area.

Perram Electric, of Wadsworth, Ohio, was awarded a contract in the amount of $25,644 to upgrade the signals, and all work is scheduled to be completed by June 30.
