The City of Ocala Engineering Department began studying traffic signals along North Magnolia Avenue in December 2018. Based on traffic studies, it has been determined that unwarranted traffic signals will be removed along North Magnolia at Northeast First Street and Second Street.
As part of the removal process that began Tuesday, signals will flash red and all-way stop signs will be added to all approaches.
Message boards and necessary devices will be in place to notify drivers of the new traffic pattern.
