Tate and Fillmore

Motorists navigate the busy Tate Street and Fillmore Street intersection around noon on Thursday. The city is purchasing a new sensor system for the downtown intersection.

The city is working on reducing the sometimes long wait for the light to change at the intersection of Fillmore Street and Tate Street.

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Tuesday gave approval for the purchase of a Wavetronix sensor system at a cost of $47,072.50. If all goes well, it could be up and running in about a month.
