The traffic lights along the corridors of 32nd Ave. S., Columbia Rd., DeMers Ave., Washington St. and Gateway Dr. have all now been equipped to be synchronized for the most efficient movement of traffic (fewer stops, less commute, etc.)

An interesting note is that our buses are also specifically plugged into this system and communicate with it directly. This improves the efficiency of the bus routes, saving gas, money and time and increasing the attraction of the public transit option.

This project was championed by the Green 3 Resource committee and brought to you in part through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (ARRA), as well as the hard work of Jane Williams in Engineering and Earl Haugen in MPO.
