Traffic notice: Clair Road traffic signal removal

Clair Road at Southgate Drive

Update June 12: The City has evaluated traffic patterns over the past 90 days and determined that the intersection will remain an all-way stop going forward. Crews will be removing the old traffic signals and equipment over the next few days.

About the project

The City is working to remove traffic signals on Clair Road at Southgate Drive which were originally installed to accommodate the construction of the Hanlon Expressway (Highway 6) and Laird Road interchange. The Hanlon Expressway at Laird Road interchange has been fully open since November, 2013 and traffic patterns in the area have since stabilized.

Traffic and pedestrian data was gathered at this intersection in October 2015 and the data shows the current volumes no longer satisfy the requirement of a traffic control signal for this intersection.

Staff will be proceeding with the removal of the temporary traffic control signal and installation of an all-way Stop control for all approaches.

Traffic light removal set for March 5

The traffic signals at the intersection of Clair Road and Southgate Drive will be turned off and covered on March 5. The intersection will be converted to an all-way stop for 90 days. After 90 days, the City will evaluate traffic patterns to determine if the intersection will remain an all-way stop. If the results do support the all-way stop intersection, the traffic signals and equipment will be dismantled and remove.
