Branson Traffic Signals Getting an Upgrade to Improve Traffic Flow

Traffic Signal Upgrades Map

Drivers in Branson should expect to see a crew of Public Works and Engineering Department employees as well as Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) employees upgrading traffic signals, starting today, at 26 intersections throughout Branson that will improve traffic flow and overall safety across the City.

The project will start Thursday, January 30, 2020, and will take approximately three weeks to complete. This work will be in city right-of-ways and is expected to have little to no impact on traffic.

In 2019, the City of Branson and MoDOT were awarded an Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) grant from the Federal Highways Administration (FWHA) to deploy a traffic management solution with a focus on Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPMs). The measures being installed will allow both agencies to work together to help with traffic flow and improve overall safety.

This cross-jurisdictional project will allow city staff and MoDOT to monitor traffic signal operations in real-time as well as enable coordination and optimization across both jurisdictions. This system will also allow both the City of Branson and MoDOT to receive instant alerts whenever maintenance issues arise, improving response time and resolution of those issues to ensure public safety.

Drivers are reminded to be mindful of workers, warning signs and changing traffic patterns while crews are upgrading traffic signals.
