New traffic signal at Polo Club Blvd. & Winchester Rd. now live
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The new traffic signal on Winchester Road at Polo Club Boulevard is now live.
The signal was fully activated Wednesday morning around 9.
It has a flashing yellow arrow to turn left onto Polo Club. Polo Club will have two left turn lanes onto Winchester Road and one right turn only lane. No U-turns will be allowed from Polo Club.
New developments are set to take place in the area, and the new light will be critical to traffic flow in the area.
Baptist Health Hamburg is one of the projects currently underway on Polo Club. About 60 percent of their business comes from that area and it’s expected to bring hundreds of jobs.
UK HealthCare also plans to build another medical complex as well to be closer to more patients.
Another plan in the works is a new Fayette County Middle School, the district is still looking at bids.
With all of these new projects and plans, the hope is for the new light to make traffic flow through the intersection smoothly and safely.
