Salem’s newest set of traffic lights are going up on State Road 56 as part of the Walmart project.

After a $14 million road reconstruction project, the stop light poles are going up this spring to complete the project.

There will be stoplights placed at Kimball Blvd. and at Coral Street.

According to the Indiana Department of Transportation, Walmart requested two traffic lights, with the one at Kimball Blvd. being mandatory and the Coral Street light being secondary, depending on the need based on traffic studies.

The median that was installed prematurely, would have only been required if there had been a need for the second set of traffic lights, which had already been installed.

The median is supposed to be removed this spring.
