Another busy area of town is about to get some safety improvements.
On Tuesday night, the City Council approved plans and specifications and ordered advertisement of bids for a new traffic signal in the Riverdale area. The signal will be installed on Northdale Boulevard between the Famous Daves and McDonalds restaurant. Pedestrian and median improvements will also be made. And just to the north, an island barrier will be installed to prevent cars leaving Costco from turning north which is prohibited.
The contract is expected to be awarded in September with construction taking place in October and November.
