Completion of the complex traffic signal system for Bowling Green's North Main Street project could take another four to six weeks.
Director of Public Works Brian Craft told city council Monday night that although some new signals have been installed, the system cannot be synchronized until it is all completed.
He said several residents have called or sent e-mails wondering why the lights aren't working together. "The work is in varying stages. Some of the new lights are installed and will remain on factory settings until all of the work is done. We feel your pain. It will be four to six weeks until it is all put together. There are lots of details to work through."
Craft said most of the paving is completed. However, there are numerous "finishing touches" such as seeding and grading to be completed. The official completion date remains next summer.
Council also:
• Gave first reading to a pair of resolutions that would place a 1.4-mill renewal levy on the May 2013 primary ballot for the parks and recreation department. Director of Parks and Recreation Dr. Michelle Grigore told council the levy accounts for 31 percent of the department's funds. The renewal would be for three years.
• Learned the city's leaf collection crew is making the second of four planned passes. Craft said the crew is doing a "grab and go" on the first two passes and will do a more "detailed" pickup on its third and fourth passes. He expects the work to be completed by early December.
• First Ward Council Member Daniel Gordon reported that he along with at-large members Robert McOmber and Sandy Rowland met with a German delegation visiting the city last week. He said the three emphasized how Bowling Green government works together on issues facing the city.
