City officials are proposing the construction of a traffic signal at the intersection of Highway 218 and Melrose Avenue.

The Metropolitan Planning Organization of Johnson County conducted a study in July 2011 at the intersection. The group recommended the installation of a traffic signal to reduce stalling and delays on the off-ramp approach.

The traffic signal at the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Camp Cardinal Boulevard would be interconnected to the proposed traffic signal.

The project would cost an estimated $111,000, and construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in March.

A public hearing will be held at the Iowa City City Council's formal meeting Jan. 24.
