New traffic signal operational now


Released by the City of Tyler:

TYLER, TX - The City of Tyler Engineering Department has advised that the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of WNW Loop 323 and Silver Creek Drive / Charlotte Drive will be complete and the signal in operation today.

The City will monitor the timing of the signal to maximize traffic flow on Loop 3323 while addressing turning movements onto Silver Creek from vehicles traveling to and from Orr Elementary, which is located northwest of this intersection.

As part of the signal installation, new pedestrian features were installed that will improve safety for students traveling to and from Orr Elementary.

"We are pleased to see this project nearing completion," said Council Member Ralph Caraway. "This signal will provide a safer intersection for the traveling public as well as pedestrians".

This project is a partnership between the Texas Department of Transportation and the City of Tyler and was funded by the half cent sales tax.
