Work Begins on Traffic Signal at Pella Intersection

Initial work to place a traffic signal at the intersection of Washington and West 3rd Streets in Pella began Monday. Pella Public Works Director Denny Buyert says the project will start with footings poured for the bases of the signal posts, and then the contractor will return in 8-10 days; after the concrete has cured. Once installed, Buyert says the signal should greatly reduce congestion caused by all vehicles having to stop at the existing four-way stop sign.
