The traffic signal at the intersection of South 40th and South streets has been struck and damaged due to a single vehicle crash. The traffic signal control cabinet and a mast arm pole structure were destroyed, in addition to electrical wiring and communications equipment, rendering the signal non-operational. Traffic Engineering staff were on-site today and temporary, all-way stop controls including left-turn prohibitions have been implemented at the intersection while damage assessments and installation of interim signal equipment can be completed. Motorists can expect delays this week, and should consider an alternate route.
Lincoln Transportation and Utilities appreciates the public's patience while emergency response and construction activities continue, and reminds residents to exercise caution at this intersection and around construction crews.
