Q. With the terrific renovation of North Third Street finally compete, when will the new traffic signals be synchronized to allow the free flow of traffic on Third?

A. The signals have remained synchronized before, during and after the Third Street renovation project, said Denys Vielkanowitz, a signal systems management engineer with the city of Wilmington.

During the construction project, traffic signal timings were changed to accommodate the reduced number of vehicle travel lanes. Now that all vehicle travel lanes are open again, traffic signal timings have been modified to accommodate the newly renovated Third Street traffic patterns along with the new pedestrian facilities, which also require specific timing parameters.
