Traffic Signalization Highway 169 & 18
Algona, IA | Public Works
The City of Algona needed to improve traffic movements and safety at the intersections of Highway 169 and Highway 18 at the entrances to a Hy-Vee and Kmart. This intersection was listed 94th on the Iowa DOT's Office of Traffic and Safety list of the top intersection Safety Improvement Candidate Locations (SICL) in Iowa.
Assistance was provided to the City of Algona with applications to secure funding from IDOT for material costs associated with traffic signal construction. Services provided for the project included survey, design, plan development, cost estimating and construction administration.
Plans included installation of new poles, lighting, signal heads, controllers, cabinet, hand holes, conduit, conductors, video detection and turn lanes. This dramatically reduced the number of accidents at this location and the City of Algona and its residents noticed the changes and appreciated the safer intersection. As a result, the location was removed from IDOT's list of high accident rate intersections.
