New stoplights will be turned on for the first time at 11 a.m. Tuesday, December 5th, at Ivy and West 8th and 9th Streets in Chico.
The $1.2 million dollar project is part of a larger pedestrian improvement project that also included sidewalk improvements and "bulb-outs".
Cal Trans Officials say Chicoans have been asking for signals at the corner since at least 2008, but projects have to meet certain criteria to be eligible for funds.
The City of Chico worked with Cal Trans to gather information about accidents involving property damage at the intersection, and that provided the information needed to move forward.
