Work on the Meco Road traffic signal is nearing completion.
The Forks Township Board of Supervisors received an update from Township Engineer Scott Muller at the board's recent meeting that the work was expected to be completed this week.
"The widening is done. Now we have to do the curbing and paving," Muller said. "Then the traffic signals will be on blink for a little while."
The light at the busy intersection, which connects with Sullivan Trail, was planned almost a decade ago.
Workers have been widening the road, installing the lights and adding turn lanes and curbing over the past three months.
Despite traffic delays, Muller said the project "has gone off with much less hitches than anticipated."
Township Supervisor David Billings wondered who will control the traffic signals as far as timing.
Muller stated that PennDOT does review the signal patterns.
"As things pick up, they could change," he said. "So we'll have to analyze and do adjustments."
Supervisors Chairman Erik Chuss remarked that the township should hold a ceremony for the traffic signals.
He laughed that supervisors could stand in the middle of the intersection and cut a ribbon.
