Commissioner Naft Turns on New Signal at Buffalo, Patrick

County Commissioner Michael Naft turned on a new traffic signal at Buffalo Drive and Patrick Lane this morning.

“Already more than 18,000 vehicles pass through this intersection every day, and it will only get busier as development continues in this area,” Commissioner Naft said. “This new signal will improve the flow of traffic in this area, and make the area safer for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.”

The new traffic signal is part of a larger project that included construction of two other traffic signals. American Southwest Electric is the contractor for the project.
