The traffic signal at the intersection of Coliseum Boulevard and the old Value City department store driveway is scheduled for removal today, weather permitting.
After the signal is removed, the intersection will become a two-way stop controlled by signage on the two frontage area driveways to the east and west of Coliseum Boulevard, with preference given to traffic on Coliseum Boulevard.
INDOT conducted a traffic study this year. The results show the business closures in the area have drastically reduced traffic volumes at the intersection to Coliseum Boulevardthat are attributable to the traffic signal.
An existing road system on either side of Coliseum Boulevard will allow any motorists who feel uncomfortable using the stop-controlled intersection to travel south to the traffic signal at the K-Mart driveway and enter Coliseum Boulevard at that location.
