SILVER LAKE — Traffic is frequently at a near standstill on the southern end of the 2 Freeway where it narrows and dumps southbound traffic onto Glendale Boulevard. But sometime later this year, new signal lights will force southbound drivers to stop when they might have been able to speed (or crawl) through in the past.
Some of the signals and signage have been installed in recent weeks. But the lights won’t begun operating until additional overhead warning lights and electrical wiring is in place and working, said CalTrans spokesman Peter Jones.
It’s not clear yet how long drivers would have to wait before getting a green light or if the signals will be operating around the clock. They are some of the final elements of the first phase of the project to improve conditions at the southern end of the 2 Freeway.
