ODOT to Fix Traffic Lights at Talentís Former Wal-Mart Location
The Talent Wal-Mart closed 16 months ago, but the traffic lights at the intersection with West Valley View Road designed to accommodate the heavy retail traffic remain on the same sequence, frustrating drivers who wait long periods with little or no cross traffic from electric vehicle manufacture Brammo, who purchased the building from Wal-Mart.
City officials and ODOT will make changes to the way the light and intersection function without incurring the cost of a traffic study. The city owns the lights, but they are maintained by ODOT. City workers must first re-stripe the intersection, removing the left turn lanes before ODOT can adjust the traffic control lightís sequence.
