Plans have been set to upgrade the traffic signals at First Avenue and Mill Road in Evansville.

Beginning Monday, March 8, the City Engineer's Office will upgrade the traffic signals at the intersection. The work is expected to last through Wednesday, March 10.

Officials say that while the work is completed, the intersection will be out of service and operate as a four-way stop.

Center curb-mounted pedestrian signals, which are frequently damaged, will be relocated to new overhead spans.

Overhead microwave vehicle detection and countdown-type pedestrian signals will also be installed.

The upgrade is part of a city-wide project to modernize nine traffic signals.

Motorists and pedestrians are asked to consider alternative routes, if possible.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
