The New York State Department of Transportation announced a traffic signal study is scheduled to begin on US Route 62, Walnut and Ferry avenues, in the City of Niagara Falls. As a result, traffic control changes will occur.
From Thursday, April 4, through Tuesday, April 9, crews will begin setting the traffic signals listed below to flash mode, and will install new stop signs at the following intersections:
The signals will flash red on the intersection approaches that will be stop-controlled. Motorists must come to a complete stop, yield the right-of-way, and proceed when it is safe. The signals will flash yellow on the intersection approaches that have the right-of-way, but motorists should drive with caution.
Pedestrian signals at these intersections will be deactivated. Motorists must yield the right of way to pedestrians legally crossing in a crosswalk or at an intersection. Motorists are advised to use caution as traffic adjusts to the new traffic pattern.
The traffic signals will stay in flash mode for 30 days, and will then go dark on approximately May 9. At that time, the signals will be bagged for a minimum of 60 days.
This work is weather-sensitive and will be delayed in the event of inclement weather.
