Downtown Redding signal timing to change this week to help traffic

Beginning Wednesday, February 14, 2018, the timing on specific traffic signals on Pine, California, Shasta, Tehama, and South Streets will change from 24/7 coordinated timing to traffic actuated at certain times.

The city of Redding and Cal Trans are doing something about traffic conditions in downtown. Beginning Wednesday the timing on specific traffic signals will be changed from timed to traffic triggered helping the flow of traffic during non-peak hours. Right now 13 Cal Trans lights and 2 city lights are causing congestion during non-traffic times due to them not changing with arrival of cars. Cal Trans says that this is not only going to help cars in the area… but it will help keep bicyclists and pedestrians safe as well.

Ben Paul explained the difference to us today by saying “the benefit of [timed lights] is that you have the ability to move a large amount of cars through the system at any given time. The down side of that is it’s timed so you get time whether there is traffic there or not... so we felt it appropriate to change the signal timing to respond to traffic that is actually in the intersection.” The change was all made possible because recent city projects have added vehicle detection in the downtown area.
