Binghamton May Pull Plug On Some Traffic Signals

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The city of Binghamton could soon replace some traffic signals with stop signs.

Mayor Matthew Ryan says the city will try to balance safety and convenience with potential cost savings.

A study is planned to determine whether the removal of certain signals would improve traffic flow at some intersections.

Removing traffic signals could save money in maintenance, repairs and replacement.

The mayor says feedback from Binghamton residents will be an important part of the evaluation process.

The plan includes placing signs to alert drivers to the signal study. Eventually, targeted traffic signals will be covered and stop signs will be installed. Residents and businesses near the affected intersections will be notified of the study.

The first intersection to be evaluated will be Leroy Street at Saint John Avenue on the West Side. The next intersection to be studied will be Conklin Avenue at Telegraph Street on the South Side.

More than two-dozen intersections are to be evaluated for possible signal removal.
