Road diet work will continue through winter

From the Sentinel:

Since fall, crews have been working to upgrade Carlisle’s traffic signals as part of the “road diet” plan.

That work will continue throughout the winter as the weather permits, said Mike Keiser, head of the borough’s public works department.

Work on the signals includes installing adaptive traffic control hardware in each signal control cabinet and installing new wires for detection cameras.

Also being installed is the emergency vehicle pre-emption system, which will allow emergency vehicles to change red lights to green when responding to calls.

The new system will be able to adapt to an influx of traffic, moving it through town faster.

The $2.8 million road diet will bring the four travel lanes on West High, East High, North Hanover and South Hanover streets down to two, with a turning lane in the center.
