City Project # EN90023
The City of Memphis, through a Surface Transportation Program (STP) Grant totaling $838,000, proposes to interconnect and coordinate traffic signals along Poplar Avenue and Germantown Road corridors. Although the proposed roadway segments are located within the City of Germantown, these segments are a part of the region-wide traffic signal communications network. Underground conduits and fiber optic cables need to pass through the City of Germantown to interconnect signals located in East Memphis and Cordova area. This project is 100% federally funded. The proposed segments are:
- Poplar Avenue from Kirby Parkway to West Street,
- Farmington Boulevard from Poplar Avenue to Germantown Rd, and
- Germantown Road from Farmington Boulevard to Wolf River Boulevard
The purpose of the "STP Poplar Ave/Germantown Rd Signal Coordination" project is to reduce delays for major street vehicular traffic and improve intersection operation efficiency. The proposed project will allow the City to monitor, diagnose, and maintain local traffic controller operations from the City Hall and the Traffic Signal Maintenance Department.
The City of Memphis is proposing improvements to traffic control signals along Poplar Avenue and Germantown Road funded through the Local Surface Transportation Program. The project consists of interconnecting a total of 9 existing traffic signals. Typical improvements include installing fiber optic communication cables, interconnecting existing signal controllers, and replacing signal control equipment and cabinets. The project location is Poplar Avenue from Kirby Parkway to West Street, Farmington Boulevard from Poplar Avenue to Germantown Rd, and Germantown Road from Farmington Boulevard to Wolf River Boulevard.
