Residents in the City of Frederick will begin noticing work to improve pedestrian safety and traffic control changes at the intersection of West 2ndStreet and College Ave.
Work to create new ADA-compliant ramps and concrete pads at all four corners at the intersection was completed in March.
Due to the current traffic signal utilized at the intersection being deficient and unwarranted based on an engineering analysis, work will begin in June to place all-way stop control, high-intensity crosswalks and remove the traffic signals and poles.
The removal of the traffic signals and placement of all-way stop control will not disrupt traffic operations and will provide for improved pedestrian safety. However, The City of Frederick’s engineering department will monitor this intersection over the course of the next 6-12 months to determine if a fully signalized intersection is needed.
