Over the past few weeks, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has begun work on upgrades and retiming of the signals along US40 throughout town. These upgrades include improved computer hardware that run the signals and is in anticipation of signal timing reprogramming along the US40 corridor.
The new hardware does result in some alterations of how the signals operate. Motorists may note some variations to the signal timing that they are accustomed to experiencing. CDOT crews are aware and will be working to smooth these differences out as the new hardware is implemented.
Some notable changes that motorists can expect to see is a change in how the Pine Grove/US40 intersection left turn arrow works from eastbound US40 onto Pine Grove Road. There will no longer be a green arrow before and after the red signal on US40.
In June, a new signal timing plan will be programmed into the entire system. As part of the project, there may also be some changes and alterations of the signal arrangements with the most notable changes being additional red left turn arrows, the addition of bicycle detection at select intersections, and enhanced vehicle detection.
