Two more message signs coming to Roseville

Changeable signs alert motorists to traffic conditions, closed routes
-A +A
They don’t just say “Click it or ticket.” Digital messages signs installed along busy roadways are changeable and used by traffic agencies to alert motorists about emergency information, road maintenance, construction activities, closed routes, special events affecting traffic conditions and more. The city of Roseville already has seven of these changeable message signs and will soon have two more. Roseville City Council approved the signs during the March 21 meeting. A sign will be installed at eastbound Baseline Road east of Fiddyment Road and one at southbound Foothills Boulevard south of Vineyard Road. The signs should be installed by September for $300,000. Of that, $35,610 comes from local Traffic Mitigation Funds and $264,390 from Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality funds. In 2005, the council adopted the Intelligent Transportation System Master Plan, which outlines technology and infrastructure improvements such as these signs. Currently, signs are located on Atlantic Street, Washington Boulevard, Riverside Avenue, Galleria Boulevard, Sierra College Boulevard, Douglas Boulevard and Sunrise Avenue. ~ Sena Christian
