SPRINGFIELD- SIGNAL & INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS AT SUMNER AVENUE, ALLEN STREET, ABBOTT STREET & HARKNESS AVENUE
This intersection is poorly aligned and confusing to motorists. The Level of Service for Sumner Ave turning to Harknes Ave is poor and the queue causes safety issues. Pedestrian accommodations are poor. This project will realign the intersection and replace the outdated signal equipment to relieve congestion and improve traffic flow and safety. It will also improve pedestrian access and safety by bringing the sidewalks, ramps and crosswalks up to AAB/ADA standard.
