Emergency Resolution No. 56-2016. A Resolution awarding the bid and authorize the City Manager to 
enter into a contract with Bansal Constructing, Inc. for the Hollytree Drive at Clark Boulevard 
Traffic Signal Project, and declaring an emergency.

Recommendation.  Adopt Resolution 56-2016 as an emergency.

Background and Discussion. The Public Works Director is recommending Council accept the bid of and 
enter into a contract with Bansal Construction, Inc., for the Hollytree Drive/Clark Blvd. Traffic 
Signal project. The project was advertised in the local paper for two weeks prior to opening on 
December 2, 2016 @ 10:30 a.m. We received 3 bids from local  contractors interested in the project. 
 Bansal Construction, Inc. was the low bidder with a bid of $211,592.35.

We are requesting that this be read as an emergency so that we can begin the project as soon as 
possible  as  some  of  the  equipment  being  installed  has  an  8-12  week  lead  time  once 
shop drawings are approved.

People have been asking for a signal here since the neighborhood went up.

Twice as many people looked at this story here and on Facebook as the post about a light at Todhunter and Cin Day road. window.post_1481899729161_15 = function(win,msg){ win.postMessage(msg,"*"); }

Guess this is more of an issue than Todhunter.

Now that the signal has been in place for several weeks, has there been any consideration given to refining the signal timing to enhance the flow of traffic? My suggestions:

1. Preference should be given to traffic on SR 63 due to its much higher volume.

2. The signal should not be triggered for Hollytree Dr or Clark Blvd unless a vehicle is present on those roads. The signal changes even when no car is on these roads.

3. There is no reason for the left turn signal onto Clark Blvd to fire EVERY time.

Those are good questions and thoughts.

I think the community could benefit from better timed more intelligent traffic lights.

I avoid 63 unless absolutely nessesary. Both directions, the lights are terrible.

I agree 100%. Perhaps inductive-loop sensors were not in the original plan to save on on cost, but it seems ridiculous to impede traffic on a state highway to signal traffic that isn't there into a parking lot (Clark Blvd).
