Hackett Boulevard at Cardinal Avenue
Hackett Boulevard at South Main Avenue
Boulevard, located on the citys southern part, is a pleasant street
that brings suburbia into the city. One stretch of the road, near its
terminus with Holland Avenue, is still undeveloped, and rather wild looking.
These signals are located in a part of Hackett Boulevard,
located between Holland Avenue and South Manning Boulevard, that is a
split roadway, with a center grassy median. This is a very nice residential
area that contains many pagoda-style four-way signals.
set of signals at Cardinal Avenue look the same as they did in the 1950s:
Single signal heads suspended on wires attached to green poles. The paint
is starting to fade on them; the signals would have been acquired prior
South Main Avenue, the signals were reconfigured around 1992. Hackett
Boulevard motorists who drive in both directions now face two signal
heads, and three of the four signals are Art Deco units. Art Deco signals
used to exist at the disjointed intersection at South Manning Boulevard;
the Art Deco flasher is still there, but the full-cycle signals there
are now modern, bracketed TCT signals.
