Sensors at Court Street have been restored, but will require final paving to be complete before back to 100% efficiency. Montvale was replaced but work continues there tonight. Broadway Ave, Home Ave, and Watkins are in progress, sensors have not been replaced yet.
Traffic signals have been affected by the TDOT US 321 resurfacing project in the city. TDOT contractor, APAC-Harrison is performing the resurfacing work. Part of the process includes grinding the existing surface which destroys the vehicle sensor loops installed under the surface. As the grinding moves through the city, several traffic signals will be impacted. A TDOT contractor is responsible for repairing the sensors after the grinding is complete. We understand the sensor repair work will take up to two weeks.
Maryville-Alcoa Central Traffic Operations personnel will adjust traffic signals to operate as efficiently as possible, but without the vehicle sensor loops, the signals will not be functioning as efficiently. The entire resurfacing project is expected to be complete by late October.
Motorists should allow extra time for travel while this work is in progress. For more information, contact 273-3500.
