The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to install back plates on traffic signal heads along US 60-Hinckleville Road between Friedman Lane and KY 998-Olivet Church Road, according to a release by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
The back plates are designed help to make traffic signal heads more visible to motorists. The plates have been effective in helping to help reduce the number of red-light running incidents in the mall area and improve overall safety, according to Keith Todd, Public Information Director.
Motorists should be alert for a traffic signal crew working at intersections along US 60 in the mall area starting Wednesday, June 23. The work is expected to take about a week to complete, weather permitting.
Todd says about 25,000 vehicles travel through this section of US 60 in an average day.
