PLYMOUTH â€”Traffic lights at the Walmart/Kmart intersection went into operation Wednesday.
The hope is that the lights will smooth out traffic flow in the especially hectic area. The lights have only traditional red, green, or yellow signals, no green turning arrowsâ€”although arrows could be added at a later date if necessary.
Oak Drive construction engineer Gary Fox, of Cripe Architects and Engineers in Indianapolis, said that the rest of the project is â€śalmost complete.â€ť
