Work is expected to begin in late fall on a $2.8 million project to replace 56 traffic signals in Hagerstown, a city official said Thursday.
"This is a major league project," said Assistant City Engineer Rodney Tissue. He said many of the signals to be replaced are along U.S. 40.
Completion of the replacement program could take more than two years, Tissue said.
Because of the work, parts of traffic lanes will be closed at times, Tissue said.
Signals to be replaced include 30 owned by the state on Franklin and Washington streets from Cannon Avenue to Nottingham Road and on Burhans Boulevard at Church and Antietam streets.
