Although they won't be fully-operational until after the upcoming Grandma's Marathon, the St. Louis County Public Works Department is working hard to get the message out about a set of temporary traffic signals.  The signals will be placed on London Road at 60th Avenue East - with a target date of June 24 for "lights on".

The signals will be put to use helping traffic flow for an upcoming project a block up on Superior Street.  That project will see rehabilitation work on the bridge over the Lester River, reconstruction of a block of Superior Street, the installation of curb and gutter, and additional sidewalk and other pedestrian accommodations.

In order to accommodate the work, a block of Superior Street will be closed starting on June 24, diverting an estimated 5,000 vehicles a day onto London Road.  It's that additional traffic that engineers have designed the temporary traffic signals for.

If the timeline goes according to schedule, the work should be finished by mid-September - in time for the NorthShore Inline Marathon.
