If there's one thing that Tyler, Texas residents know, it's that traffic can be a nightmare sometimes. Stop and go traffic, bad drivers, constant red lights, red light runners, speeding drivers, major congestion, the list can go on and on. It can seriously be frustrating. The city can't control every aspect of our roadways but they can control some of the very frustrating congestion we can experience. Since 2019, the City of Tyler has been retiming lights in stages, which has seemed to help. More lights are about to be retimed to hopefully further improve traffic flow.

Retiming Approval

Wednesday, April 10, the Tyler City Council voted to approve $112,480 to use toward retiming 15 intersections in North Tyler. This is part of the Intelligent Transportation System Master Plan. As a part of a study presented to the city in August of 2020, a recommendation was presented that traffic signals should be retimed on an annual basis. The plan calls for retiming 15 intersections per year for six years followed by 30 intersections a year for four years.
