The city’s “first” traffic signal, located at Sequoia and Hazel Dell at the main entrance to the Canby Fred Meyer complex, is expected to be operational within a few days: by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, according to Interim City Administrator Amanda Zeiber.
Though there are a number of stoplights in the city, they are all operated by the state (ODOT) or Clackamas County. This one, on the other hand, is the first that will be built, operated and maintained by the city of Canby.
The $640,000 project is being funded by primarily by urban renewal dollars. Columbia Distributing, whose trucks are expected to use the intersection as their primary means of access to Highway 99E (until a new north outlet road is constructed), agreed to contribute 5 percent of the project’s costs.
