Manatee County officials are asking drivers to use extra caution on county roads in coming months as traffic signals at several intersections are adjusted and retimed under the second major implementation of the Advanced Traffic Management System.
The retiming project begins Jan. 14.
Florida Department of Transportation-funded project will allow more than 230 traffic signals in Manatee County to be better coordinated with each other.
The project is designed to decrease travel times by increasing the efficiency of traffic signals.
Some of the major roads included in this phase include Lakewood Ranch Boulevard between state roads 64 and 70 and University Parkway east of I-75.
Drivers who are familiar with certain left turn signals on their routes may notice that the lights don’t turn green when they expect them to.
The retiming project is the fourth major phase of the Advanced Traffic Management System project, which includes upgrading traffic signals and adding vehicle detection devices.
