Highway 33 gets the green light

After several delays, the traffic lights at the intersection of Highway 33 and Celebrity Drive have finally been activated.

The signal was installed by the city of Ruston via a permit from the DOTD and came about as a component of traffic mitigation related to the construction of the new Frontage Road extension.

The traffic lights were installed at the end of July and set for activation on Aug. 5, but infrastructure issues found by the DOTD halted the progress.

After those problems were resolved, activation was once again delayed due to Hurricane Laura.
