It was a sight for sore eyes.
But there they were Friday morning -- traffic lights.
The traffic lights were being set up along the with Sullivan Trail, the last item on a long checklist of items to fulfill a longtime goal of easing traffic congestion on this Forks Township main artery.
Around 9 a.m. Friday, construction crews were putting up traffic signals on the Meco Road side of the intersection while two signals were installed and covered on the Sullivan Trail portion.
For the past month, most motorists have dealt with traffic delays as this intersection received extensive work -- everything from the traffic signals to adding new curbs to widening Sullivan Trail.
officials had stated that the project, about eight years in the making, should be finished by mid-July.
At a recent Forks Township Board of Supervisors meeting, Public Works Director Mark Roberts said the project was right on track.
On the Palmer/Forks Facebook page Friday, many viewers stated under a picture showing the traffic signals their happiness, some saying "Awesome" while others saying "It's About Time."
Township officials have stated that they believe the light is probably the most important traffic signal in town.
