Traffic signals on North Main Street are still weeks away from functioning as a unit, Bowling Green City Council was told Monday night.
Director of Public Works Brian Craft said it has been determined that one of the arms installed to hold signals is too high. "They will have to remove and re-pour a foundation," Craft said. "It so happens that's the signal that has the master controller."
Craft said there is nothing the city can do to speed up the progress. He said the Ohio Department of Transportation, which is in control of the project, has been pushing the general contractor to get the subcontractor moving. "It has been frustrating for everybody.
The subcontractor was working on the signals and traffic lighting over the weekend, Craft said.
The contract calls for the project to be completed in September. Craft said finishing work on other parts of the project has begun in earnest this month. He said a retaining wall is being completed at North Prospect Street and East Poe Road. Craft is hopeful all of the work can be finished by June 1.
Council also approved legislation amending the city's Community Development Block Grant Citizen Participation Plan and adopting the Bowling Green Fire Division's Standards of Cover for 2013.
