TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Three intersections in Topeka are getting some improvements to their traffic lights.
The upgraded signals will go up at three locations along Southwest Topeka Boulevard.
The first is at Topeka and Southwest 57th Street, followed by Topeka and University Boulevard near Forbes field. The third one will be at Topeka and Gary Ormsby drive near Heartland Motorsports Park.
Public Works said the lights at the intersections are old and need to be replaced.
The new lights will include dedicated left-turn signals for traffic turning off of Topeka Boulevard, which Public Works hopes will improve safety.
Construction is set to begin next September and will be paid for with federal funds totaling $850,000.
