(Imperial City Council agrees to Cal Trans stipulations)….In doing so, Cal Trans has agreed to construct a traffic signal at Highway 86 and Neckel Road.
The city wants the traffic signal try and reduce the accidents in that area. They feel traffic incidents will only get worse once the Holiday Inn opens in the area. Cal Trans said they would install the signal if the City would identify a funding source and promise to construct a left turn lane from the Highway to the entrance to the new Holiday Inn. The City agreed to add the turn lane in their Capital Improvement Plan. The Traffic Signals should be up and operational within the next six months.
