State DOT to adjust traffic signal timing on Walden Avenue

The timing of traffic signals on Walden Avenue between Harlem Road and Union Road will be adjusted by the state Department of Transportation in coming months as a result of pleas to the agency by Assemblywoman Angela Wozniak, C-Cheektowaga.

Wozniak, who has been pushing for ways to improve travel times on the busy road, said she was told by DOT officials that over the next few months three new traffic signal plans will be implemented at different points in the day – from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., midday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and evenings from 2:30 p.m.. to 7:30 p.m. She said she was told the midday signal plan will remain in effect on weekends from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“After the completion of the Department of Transportation’s investigation, it has been determined that several new coordinated timing plans will be implemented for the Walden Avenue traffic signals,” she said. “I am pleased a solution has been found to help make the commute to work as well as the general ease of transportation for the residents of Cheektowaga has been resolved.”
