Temporary traffic lights turned off

The temporary traffic signals at Cumberland and Water Streets were turned off and covered on February 1, the intersection returning to its original state. These temporary signals were installed by the Federal Bridge Corporation’s contractor to address additional traffic on Cumberland Street during the construction of Brookdale Avenue. Now that Brookdale Avenue has reopened, traffic volumes on Cumberland Street have eased. In the coming months, the City’s Engineering Department, together with other departments, will assess the need for permanent traffic signals at this intersection, both from a vehicular and pedestrian point of view. A report will be presented to City Council in May. In the meantime, the intersection will operate as it did originally with a stop sign controlling southbound traffic at Cumberland Street and through traffic on Water Street having the right of way. — photo Francis Racine
