Project Facts

  • Cost:

Completed in May 2016, this project improved traffic signals and the intersection of SH 151 and SH 172 in the Town of Ignacio.

Project Outcomes

  • Signalization will improve safety at this highly congested intersection—specifically for pedestrians crossing the street at this location in downtown Ignacio.


The intersection at state highways 151 and 172 is highly congested with traffic, including heavy oil field truck traffic.

Work, which was completed from March - May 2016, required a 30-day closure of Ute Street and some traffic delays.
