The City of Wichita is starting the first phase of a project to improve traffic signals.
$500,000 from the city’s Capital Improvement Plan budget will go toward addressing traffic delay times.
Public Works Director Alan King explained at the mayor's briefing Thursday that Wichita has one of the lowest delay times among 100 similarly-sized cities. It takes 20 minutes on average to get across town.
“Still, we want to focus on continuing to reduce our delay times," he said.
