Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Spokesman Keith Todd said KyTC crews should be installing a stoplight at the intersection in the next two or three months, although they don’t have a specific date at this point. There is currently only a caution light there.
Todd said the amount of traffic is a big factor when determining where to put a stoplight versus a caution light, and that the presence of a caution light – or flashing beacon – there will speed up the installation.
“Normally, it takes anywhere from like two – six months for a traffic signal to get up and running, simply because the crews that install the signals, you have to go in, you have to put in bases for the poles, you have let those set a certain amount of time,” said Todd.
