New traffic signal on MLK aims to reduce traffic, increase pedestrian safety

In an effort to keep drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists safe, the town of Chapel Hill and the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) began installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Longview Street last week. If construction remains on schedule, the traffic signal will be functional by April 20.
