Main and Parrot Streets Intersection Improvements

The intersection of Parrot St. and Main St. was signalized with a span wire configuration and no left turn phases. Left turn lanes were added both north and south bound to provide relief for the through traffic that would be blocked by the high volume of left turning trucks.

To add to the complexity of the intersection an at-grade railroad crossing is about 100 ft. west of the intersection, so railroad pre-emption was added to the signal installation to help prevent vehicles from stopping on or backing up onto the tracks.

With overhead electric and many underground utilities, a two pole mast arm design was installed to minimize the number of foundation that may impact the existing underground infrastructure. In addition to the mast arm signal, 2,000 ft. of roadway was improved, new waterlines were installed, and, a low retaining wall was designed and installed.
