A new traffic signal is expected to start operating Wednesday, Nov. 14, in front of the Woodland Town Center on South Illinois Avenue.
The new shopping center includes a Aubrey’s restaurant and a larger, relocated Panera Bread.
The traffic light is at the intersection of South Illinois and a new road called Woodland Terrace East. It replaces a short section of Quincy Avenue that was removed to make way for Woodland Town Center.
In a press release, the city said the new traffic signal will allow access to Illinois Avenue for Aubrey’s and Panera Bread, the Woodland neighborhood, and other future developments. The former Dean Stallings Ford site on the west side of Illinois Avenue will have access to the signal when that property re-opens, the release said.
Installation of the traffic light could be delayed due to bad weather, the city said.
