New traffic signals have been installed on Jefferson Highway, from College Drive to the Interstate 12 ramp, just past Drusilla Lane.

New mast arm signals, with detection cameras, pedestrian crossings, fiber-optic interconnects and LED lights, are now tied into the Advanced Management Traffic Center, located near the Baton Rouge airport, Bryan Harmon, interim Baton Rouge Department of Public Works director, said.

The project was accepted Aug. 14 as complete by the Baton Rouge Metro Council.

The final construction cost was $1.46 million, and the contractor was Jack B. Harper.
