SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council approved plans for the construction of a traffic signal at the intersection of Highway 218 and Melrose Ave. Tuesday night.

The traffic signal, which will cost the city $111,000, will be interconnected to the existing signal at the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Camp Cardinal Boulevard to make signaling operation more efficient.

The project will be funded with U-STEP Grant proceeds and general-obligation proceeds.

Construction is expected to begin in March.

Councilors approved the plans on a 7-0 vote.
