The TH 3 Traffic Signal Improvements Project includes the installation of an emergency vehicle preemption (EVP) on the TH 3 corridor from Second Street in Northfield to Hester Street in Dundas.
An EVP system allows emergency response vehicles a green light on their approach to a signalized intersection while providing a red light to conflicting approaches. In addition to the EVP installations, some signal revisions will also be performed along the corridor.
The proposed intersections for improvement include the following:
TH 3 and TH 19 (Second Street) – signal revision and EVP system
TH 3 and TH 19 (Fifth Street) – signal revision and EVP system
TH 3 and TH 246 (Woodley Street) – signal revision and EVP system
TH 3 and Jefferson Parkway – signal revision and EVP system
TH 3 and Honey Locust Drive – signal revision and EVP system
TH 3 and CSAH 1 (110th Street, Rice County) – EVP System
TH 3 and Hester Street (Dundas) – EVP system
The City of Northfield was awarded a Local Partnership Program (LPP) Grant from the State of Minnesota in the amount of $290,000 as part of the improvement project.
Along with the City of Northfield, the City of Dundas and Rice County have partnered with the City of Northfield to upgrade to the EVP system on their signal system as well.
The project process is the actions the City of Northfield utilizes for local improvements during project development. This step by step process includes opportunities for City Council and Residents to provide input on the proposed project.
