WHAT’S UP WITH THAT? Concord Road traffic signals

Reader Bobby Harlow contacted BHP’s What’s Up with That department to ask: Can someone look at the synchronization of the lights at Edmondson Pike and Green Hill Boulevard? Traffic on Concord is very slow because when the light at Edmondson turns green, the light at Green Hill turns red.
We went to Robert Allen, the city’s Traffic Operations Coordinator, for the answer.

Reader Bobby Harlow contacted BHP’s What’s Up with That department here at the home office to ask: Can someone look at the synchronization of the lights at Edmondson Pike and Green Hills Boulevard? Traffic on Concord is very slow because when the light at Edmondson turns green, the light at Green Hills turns red.

We went to Robert Allen, the city’s Traffic Operations Coordinator, for the answer. Here’s what he told us:

“We are waiting on the contractor to finish the installation of the new permanent signal at Concord at Edmondson.  Currently there is no vehicle detection at Edmondson Pike, so synchronization between Edmondson and Green Hill Boulevard does not exist.  However, we have installed some “time of day” plans to help alleviate traffic congestion during our peak traffic times.

“Likewise, we are waiting on the contractor to remove the temporary signal at Crockett at Green Hill.  The signal has been placed in an “all red” flash mode and the stop signs have been reinstalled.  This intersection is currently working as an ‘all way’ stop.  The traffic signals will be removed!”

Allen also mentioned that he doesn’t yet have a target date for installation of the planned traffic signal at Crockett and Concord.  “The contractor was waiting on some utilities to be relocated and more road work to be completed to continue their work there.  This intersection was put back to its original state as a single stop for Crockett Road traffic.”

Jackie Hunter, construction manager of TDOT’s Concord Road Expansion Project, confirmed that they are in the process of removing the temporary light at Crockett and Green Hill. “The contractor still has work around Edmondson Pike before we can get it entirely to an automatic status,” he added.
