New Traffic Light at 424/Gov Br. Intersection

From The South River Source:
A permanent traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Governor Bridge Road and Route 424 in Davidsonville before the end of the year according to the State Highway Administration. The traffic signal will replace the blinking light that is currently in place at this busy crossroad.
A permanent traffic light will be installed at Governor Bridge Road and 424. Work will begin on November 15.
State Highway spokesman Charlie Gischlar said work will begin on November 15 and will be finished  before Christmas.
According to Gischlar, the cost to install the new traffic signal is $34,000. Signal caps, lights and traffic responsive cameras will be added to the existing infrastructure.
Gischlar said once installed, the traffic light will be put on flash mode for three days to help motorists become familiar with the new stop light.  Signs will also be posted along the two intersecting roadways to advise motorists of the new signal.
In 2007, a temporary stop light was installed at Governor Bridge Road and Route 424 to help re-direct traffic while the Patuxent River Bridge was under construction. The traffic signal was turned to a blinking light once the work was finished.
