SMYRNA, Del.- The activation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Carter and Sunnyside roads in Smyrna indicates the finishing touches to the year-long Carter Road Project.

The signal was activated Monday flashing a red light. On Friday, Dec. 6, it will change to a full "red-yellow-green" light.

This was just part of the Delaware Department of Transportation's $4 million construction project on Carter Road. Other additions to road include new 11-foot lanes, five-foot shoulders on each side, curbs and sidewalks, a drainage system to deal with stormwater, relocation of utility poles and streetlights.

The ribbon cutting for the road is scheduled for Jan. 7 at 2 p.m.
