JULY 26, 2022 - City of Allen was awarded a $2 million grant through the Highway Safety Improvement Program from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The funding is intended to enhance safety at key intersections. Most notably, the grant includes funding for installation of a new traffic signal at Greenville Avenue and Ridgemont Drive.

To satisfy the grant requirements, Council approved spending $220,000 for the design of traffic signal improvements at approximately 11 locations in Allen.

Improvements include replacing existing and older video detection technology with new cameras, upgrading pedestrian push buttons to newer audio-accessible technology, relocating existing traffic signal poles that have been damaged, rewiring traffic signals to replace older wiring, installing longer signal arms to accommodate dual left turn signal heads, and upgrading existing traffic signal cabinets with new and improved technology.
