The City of Warrensburg is getting upgraded traffic signals.

The City Council on Monday night authorized a final payment to Capital Electric Line Builders, Inc., in the amount of $701,286.14.

The original approved cost of the project was $638,077.22, and is being funded by the General Obligation Bonds. Seven change orders later, (totaling $63,208.920) and the figure increased to a little over $700,000.

The project includes controllers and cabinets, signals heads and radar detection, according to the suppliers.

City staff will bring the finalized component procurement agreement with Traffic Control Corporation (TCC) to City Council for acceptance once all work related to their portion of the project has been completed.

TCC is working on fine tuning the radar detection systems, wireless communication system and making final adjustments to timings. Once final payment has been made to TCC, staff will submit the required request for reimbursement to MoDOT for approximately $230,000, according to Public Works Director Slim Coleman.

The upgrade promises a more efficient and reliable traffic signal system throughout the City of Warrensburg.
