Signal Adjustments Improve Travel Along Major Corridors
Recent adjustments to traffic signal timing have improved traffic flow along two of Elk Grove’s busiest roadways—Laguna and Elk Grove boulevards between Bruceville Road and Interstate 5. These signal synchronization and coordination adjustments allow drivers traveling near the posted speed limit along these corridors to have a higher probability of hitting green lights at intersections. This results in a reduction of stop and go travel, idling at red lights, vehicle emissions, and travel time along these high traffic volume corridors. Motorists using the lower traffic volume north/south side streets or making left turns along these corridors may experience slightly longer wait times. City staff continue to monitor the timing plans and will make adjustments, as needed. Learn more at elkgrovecity.org/greenwave.
