Officials to remove unnecessary traffic signals in the Thumb

Posted: Updated:
HURON COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Michigan Department of Transportation officials are again out in the Thumb, removing unnecessary traffic signals in various cities in Huron County.

A 14-month study concluded that the following traffic signals were deemed as unnecessary and will be removed:

  • Pigeon: M-142 (Michigan Avenue) at Main Street
  • Caseville: M-25 (Main Street) at Michigan Avenue
  • Bad Axe: M-53/M-142 (Van Dyke Road/Port Crescent Street) at Watkins Place
  • Port Austin: M-25 (Spring Street) at M-25/M-53 (Lake Street)

The following signals will be removed and replaced with an overhead flashing light (red in one direction, yellow in the other):

  • Elkton: M-142 (Whalen Street/Mill Street) at Main Street
  • Bad Axe: M-53/M-142 (Port Crescent Street) at Irwin Street

Motorists may experience short, intermittent delays while signal work is being done. The project will improve operations and increase safety for motorists at the intersections. The project is expected to be complete in May.
