A $500,000 project to upgrade many of the city's traffic signals is scheduled to start next month.
Signals at 14 of the city's 32 intersections will be upgraded to improve automobile and pedestrian traffic flow, said Patrick West, deputy city manager.
Computerized signal controllers and traffic sensors will be installed at each intersection.
The project also includes new pedestrian signals, which will be activated by push buttons.
At three intersections--Alondra Boulevard and Garfield Avenue, Alondra and Downey Avenue, and Rosecrans and Downey avenues--new left-turn signals will be installed.
The project is funded primarily through a federal grant.
