City to remove signal lights from square

Posted

Shelbyville City Manager Josh Ray announced recently that construction crews will be removing signal lights from the public square within the next couple of months.  

Two weeks prior to removal, the signal lights will operate under “flash mode” so everyone can get accustomed to the change, Ray said. After that 2-week period, crews will remove the signal lights.  

“This traffic pattern will function as a square-a-bout, similar to a round-a-bout.”  

Ray said more information will be forthcoming from City Hall, so that everyone is aware of the process. He hopes this transition will be a smooth one.  

City Council is set to approve Thursday night an appropriation of $295,091 for upgrades to the center light poles and to improve the median of the center public square during its current sidewalk project. There is an anticipated reimbursement from Bedford County in the amount of $100,000.  

Shelbyville City Council will meet in regular session 6 p.m. Thursday at Shelbyville Recreation Center, meeting room B.  

On the agenda:  

Approval of the appropriation of the estimated cost of $220, 023 for the Madison Street Crossing project—an increase of $66,023 from the amount approved at the Feb. 11, 2021 meeting.  

Approval of the Parks and Recreation’s City-Wide Master Plan, which includes more parking for ball field areas. 

Approval of a resolution for the settlement in the National Opioid Litigation against distributors and Johnson & Johnson. The County has hired a law firm to handle its involvement.
