HOLDEN — A traffic light is being replaced at the town’s busiest intersection and the three-week project might cause traffic delays.
The Maine Department of Transportation is upgrading the traffic signal at the intersection of Routes 1 and 46.
The upgrade is designed to improve traffic flow and safety … and includes the installation of a new advanced vehicle detection system and short-range communications technology, according to a Maine DOT press release.
Dagle Electrical Construction of Wilmington, Massachusetts began the work Monday and is scheduled to be finished by Aug. 31.
The project has a price tag of just over $259,000.
The Maine DOT is advising drivers to expect minor traffic delays and said drivers should expect to see uniformed police officers controlling traffic when the lights are off.
