Traffic light issues at Woodland Avenue and Snively Road due to electric and wiring issues. Construction of the Woodland Avenue and Snively Road intersection finished in October.

There are now issues with new traffic signal system leading to long delays for motorists. The main issue affecting drivers the delayed traffic light turning right onto Snively road.

The delays are from a combination of factors. One of the factors are the signal timing in the signal controller, or wiring in certain signal heads.

Additionally, the new fiber optic cable connecting the traffic signal controllers between Woodland/Snively and Woodland/Arrowhead have issues. This prevents signal timing coordination between traffic signal systems. When one intersection is backed up, then it affects the other intersection.

The City of Duluth have developed a plan to fix the problem the week of December 5th. Specifically, the red right arrows facing traffic on northbound Woodland Avenue will be displayed less frequently. This should result in minimal delay for northbound vehicles on Woodland Avenue turning right onto northbound Snively Road.
