Traffic Signal at Duplex Road & Port Royal

Traffic signal at Duplex and Port Royal Road

As part of the overall project to widen Duplex Road, a long-awaited temporary traffic signal was installed in December 2016 at the intersection of Duplex Road and Port Royal Road. After a 21-month process of appraisals and negotiations with multiple property owners, the City acquired property access, with TDOT approval, needed to construct the signal, which is critical to public safety along Duplex Road. With the widening of Duplex Road, which TDOT has projected to begin in mid-2017, a permanent signal will be installed including grading down the steep hill along Duplex to create clear visibility when approaching the intersection. For now, the temporary light includes a warning signal before the large hill on Duplex to alert drivers of the approaching traffic signal.
