We’ve had a number of questions and complaints from readers about two particular intersections. On the left in the above image is the intersection of Glades Road and Diego, in the Mission Bay community. On the right is the intersection on US-441 (State Road 7) just south of Glades Road.
At Diego the repaving turned off the light’s sensors causing it to revert to set timing. This has been a particular annoyance for through traffic on Glades Road. We spoke today with Dan Weisberg, director of the county traffic division. He did not have a particular date but said that such signals normally get fixed within about a month after the repaving is done. We did see some work going on at the intersection today but we think that was line painting rather than work on the signal.
Regarding the 441 traffic light, Weisberg said that is a project by the plaza on the southeast corner (Westwinds of Boca, the plaza with Home Depot and Publix). The county approved the plans and will inspect it before it is activated. The inspection has not taken place yet. Signs indicating the new traffic pattern should be put up a week before the lights go live.
