KL Engineering completed traffic signal design services for the Janesville HSIP Intersection project in Janesville, WI. The project was granted funding as a safety improvement that will replace existing traffic signals at the intersections of West Memorial Drive with North Washington Street and East Milwaukee Street with North Randall Avenue.
Traffic signal equipment at both intersections had reached the end of their useful life. This project replaced the equipment and implemented traffic signal head per lane indications, which promote signal visibility and safety – the primary objectives of the project.
Curb ramps were also brought to current ADA standards. One pedestrian crossing movement had been perceived as particularly dangerous by nearby residents. That crossing will benefit from design features that included an accessible pedestrian signal and electronic signing to increase driver’s awareness of pedestrians in the crosswalk.
