Town adjusts Grigsby Chapel- Campbell Station intersection timers


Motorists may have noticed freer morning rush hour traffic on Grigsby Chapel Road since Town Engineer Darryl Smith adjusted the Campbell Station Road/GCR traffic signal for the 7 to 8 a.m. hour.

The change allows more time for motorists turning left from Grigsby Chapel, improving the flow of traffic some drivers claim was disrupted by the installation of traffic calming islands.

“After several observations and different counts, we’ve made some corrections to the signal timing and it seems to be working much better now,” Smith said.

Thursday, April 2, Alan Childers, with Cannon & Cannon, adjusted the intersection to allow ease of traffic in the Grigsby Chapel corridor and at Farragut Primary School.


The signal only is adjusted during the peak morning traffic hour, from about 7 to 8 a.m.

“Traffic backs up around the Primary School, and we’ve always known that’s the big issue out there. That traffic backs up a good bit,” Smith said.

“Now, [in] each cycle, that left turn [from Grigsby Chapel toward Interstate-40/75] gets the full cycle it was intended to get,” Smith said.

“It operates just beautifully,” he added.

Alderman Tom Rosseel suggested re-timing the signal at Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting, Thursday, March 26.
