Traffic lights to be removed on South Ave., Midlothian

The city plans to remove four traffic lights and upgrade 10 others along South Avenue and Midlothian Boulevard to improve traffic flow.

Work on the $1.9 million project will be done next year.

The traffic-signal removals and replacements may result in temporary short-term disruption of traffic and pedestrian movement during construction, city officials said.

The lights at Midlothian and Rush Blvd. and Midlothian and Erie Street were replaced about 8 years ago. Before they were replaced the timing of the lights was "Perfect". Traffic flow kept moving and you spent a minimal amount of time waiting for the light, especially if you were making a left turn onto Rush or Erie. After the lights were replaced cars are constantly backed-up waiting to make left-hand turns. I wish the so called "Traffic Engineers" would have taken a closer look at the traffic flow before they go and change things. I'm guessing that these lights are the ones that are going to be "Removed". I will bet that the instances of traffic accidents will increase at these 2 intersections.
