The temporary traffic signals along Henry Street located at the intersections of South Ann Arbor Street, South Harris Street and Old Creek Drive have been energized and are scheduled to be placed on four-way red flash beginning this afternoon (Wednesday, May 18th).
The four-way red flash acts as a four-way stop. The four-way red flash will be in place until the Henry Street detour for eastbound Michigan Ave traffic is put on-line; currently scheduled for May 23 or 24. Once the Henry Street detour for eastbound Michigan Ave traffic is initiated, the temporary traffic signals will begin operating as a normal green/yellow/red signal. The reason for the four-way red flash is to assist in acclimating motorists with the new traffic signals.
Please stay tuned for updates as the Michigan Avenue project moves forward. The City of Saline staff will be providing a minimum of weekly updates and sometimes daily depending on what is taking place in the construction zone.
