FM 1570 lights to stay the same

GREENVILLE — On second thought, the signal light at a busy local intersection won’t be changed after all.

Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Greenville Area Engineer Tammy Sims said there was a significant public response to a decision announced last week to switch the signal located on FM 1570/Jack Finney Boulevard at Air Park to flash mode.

“We had a lot of people contact our office,” Sims said.

Instead of the standard red, yellow and green designations in either direction, the signal light was to be switched to a flashing yellow for FM 1570 traffic and flashing red for traffic on Air Park.

“We decided not to put it on flashing mode at this time,” Sims said.

According to the TxDOT announcement, a recent traffic study was requested by the City of Greenville and indicated the signal at this intersection no longer met the required warrants. The traffic at the location was to be monitored to determine whether or not to remove the signal altogether.

That also has changed.

“We are not going to remove it,” Sims said. “We’re going to leave it in place.”

Current tenants of the Air Park, which is overseen by the Greenville Economic Development Corporation, include McKesson, OmniSYS, and Texas Book Company.
