Traffic Signals

Green Level Church Road at Jenks Road Traffic Signal 

Green Level Church Road at Jenks Road is planned for a wood pole/span wire traffic signal and associated roadway improvements. Both roadways are maintained by NCDOT and the traffic signal will be owned and maintained by NCDOT. Apex is responsible for the traffic signal and the developer of the Reams Grove subdivision is responsible for southbound and westbound left turn lanes. 

Beaver Creek Commons Drive at Zeno Road Traffic Signal

Beaver Creek Commons Drive at Zeno Road is planned for a metal pole/mast arm traffic signal with signalized crosswalks and associated roadway improvements. Both roadways are maintained by Apex. Therefore, the traffic signal will be owned and maintained by Apex, but operated by NCDOT as part of the NC 55 closed loop signal system. The project is proposed to open the right-in/right-out driveway across from Zeno Road as a full-movement driveway. An additional through lane will be extended eastbound from the bus pull-out area to Zeno Road as well as restriping for an eastbound left turn lane serving the driveway between Wells Fargo and Panda Express. 

S Salem Street at Tingen Road / Justice Heights Street Traffic Signal

This project included installation of a wood pole traffic signal with signalized crosswalks and associated roadway improvements to channelize and improve turning movements for the offset intersection. The traffic signal will be owned and operated by NCDOT as a temporary signal, until the Apex Peakway Bridge over South Salem Street is constructed and open to traffic, and subsequently the Tingen Road railroad crossing must be closed at that time as part of the Town’s Corridor Master Agreement with CSX and NCDOT.  

Old US 1 at New Hill Olive Chapel Road / New Hill Holleman Road Traffic Signal

A wood pole traffic signal was installed at the intersection of Old US Hwy 1 and New Hill Olive Chapel Road/New Hill Holleman Road. Both roadways are state-maintained. This project did not include roadway improvements. The traffic signal is owned and operated by NCDOT.
