Confirmation Lights Added to Many Traffic Signals
Blue-colored confirmation lights have been installed on traffic signals at several intersections throughout Ramsey County. These assist law enforcement in reducing crashes caused by motorists driving through red lights. The highly-visible blue lights illuminate when a traffic signal changes to red, allowing a patrol officer to witness a signal violation from many positions and improving enforcement. Right angle crashes at signalized intersections usually involve a motorist violating a red light and these crashes are typically severe with injuries. Ramsey County received a federal safety grant to fund installation of these 128 blue lights at 49 intersections.
Confirmation lights are installed on traffic signals at these locations:
- County Road D/37th Avenue from Old Highway 8 to I-35W
- Larpenteur Avenue from TH 280 to Hamline Avenue
- Silver Lake Road from County Road D/37th Avenue to Rice Creek Road
- Lexington Avenue from Larpenteur Avenue to County Road E
- Highway 96 from Hamline Avenue to Highway 61
- Cleveland Avenue at Roselawn Avenue
