A new traffic signal is being added at the intersection in front of the Grand Avenue parking structure. It is part of a larger $529,000 yakʔitʸutʸu project aimed at improving pedestrian and vehicle traffic flow at the busy intersection.
Currently, the intersection has a new blinking pedestrian sign.
Infrastructure and surface improvements are expected to be completed this month, along with new slurry seal and striping along the entire Grand Avenue roadway, according to university spokesperson Matt Lazier.
Signal poles are expected to be installed in December.
