- Widen Meridian Road to five lanes between Franklin Road and Cherry Lane
- Construct a cross-over roadway, connecting Main Street and Meridian Road, just south

Signal Timing in the Area
With work underway at the Meridian/Cherry and Main/Fairview
intersections, we appreciate everyone’s patience with the necessary signal
We recognize that the intersection work is also impacting surrounding
alternate routes. ACHD traffic signal engineers have transitioned to these
parallel routes (Ustick/Pine/Franklin) to further optimize timing. We have
received many good ideas from the public for signal adjustments and are
working through them.
What can be done about the signal timing at Pine and Main?
The signal at this intersection favors Main Street traffic, as Main
Street is the primary north/south roadway and is taking on even more traffic
while Meridian Road is closed.
In addition, the Main/Pine traffic signal is coordinated with the nearby
traffic signal at Main/Broadway – this requires there be a guaranteed amount
of green time for the north/south movement at both traffic signals. Any
additional time given to Pine would have to come from the Main Street
movements which, in turn, would create additional delay.
Unfortunately, there is a limit to the relief that additional signal timing
can bring under these construction circumstances. Motorists should continue
to anticipate delays at the Fairview intersections as well as throughout the
We continue to hear that people want this project to be done quickly as
possible – and we share that desire. In August 2011, 60% of respondents
supported a closure of Meridian Road to get the project done as quickly as
possible. In working to do so, certain closures are necessary for short
periods of time to speed up construction. We realize this inconveniences
many people; however these measures are needed for the safety of the
construction crews, traveling public, and businesses.
We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through this complex
project. At this time, we are still on schedule for an October project
