MDOT replaces traffic signal system in Allegan
A crew working at the base of water tower hill in Allegan were busy upgrading the traffic signal Wednesday and Thursday, May 7-8, according to Michigan Department of Transportation spokesman Nick Schirripa.
The crew closed the right lane of southbound M-40/M-89 where it turns south onto Cedar Street.
Schirripa said, “The work is part of our standard traffic signal upgrade program currently going on in Allegan, Kalamazoo and St. Joseph counties.”
The Kalamazoo Transportation Service Center which serves those counties replaces approximately a dozen of the signals each year.
Schirripa said it appears that the signals at that intersection in Allegan were 15 years old and were being replaced due to age.
