Crew to activate new traffic signal in Graves County

A new traffic signal will be activated at the intersection of Paducah-Mayfield Road and Key Bottom Road in Graves County on Friday, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says the signal replaces one that was installed in 1982. The new signal has Wi-Fi pucks to alert the controller when vehicles are waiting to make turns. Todd says that should improve traffic flow at the intersection. 

Todd says the upgraded is expected to go into service around 10 a.m. Friday, if weather allows. An electrical crew will work at the intersection on Friday to remove the old signal heads and wiring.
