Stoplight at 27th Street and S. Grand in Glenwood Springs to start flashing

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – A new stoplight at 27th Street and South Grand Avenue will open its eyes and blink for the first time late this week.The traffic light will start blinking sometime at the end of the week and will flash for seven days before beginning normal traffic control operations, according to Glenwood Springs assistant engineer Steve Vanderleest.The city asks drivers to be aware that the traffic signal is there and will soon be functioning. The new light is expected to improve traffic flow and cut down on the amount of time drivers must wait at stop signs north and south of the intersection.The light cost about $300,000 but most of that was paid by a grant.Post Independent, Glenwood Springs Colorado CO
