11/4/2009 - Traffic Signal at Flavor Pict & Hagen Ranch - Status

After more than a year of waiting, residents west of Boynton Beach will get their traffic light.

Work began Oct. 29 on the light at the intersection of Hagen Ranch and Flavor Pict roads, according to Dan Weisberg, Palm Beach County's director of traffic engineering. He said that it generally takes three to four months to complete work on a traffic light installation.

The developer of Whitworth Farms, a shopping center at the northwest corner of the intersection, promised to install the light before the center opened in August 2008, bringing an increase in traffic to the area. But after nothing happened for nearly a year, the county sent the development company, Monroe's Prestige Group, an official notice in July saying the county would take over the project if work didn't start within 30 days.

"There was a discussion about using bond money, but from a financial, legal and coordinating view, it would have been messy," Weisberg said.

At that point, the developer moved forward with contracts and permits for the project.

The light is seen as a necessity by residents, many of whom say they fear for their lives when driving through that intersection.

The latest county crash data shows that there has been a significant increase this past year in traffic accidents at that intersection that could have been fixed by a traffic signal.
