Beginning next week drivers on Nicholasville's North Main Street will be seeing more red as the new traffic light at Lake and High streets will become active.
The traffic signal is the result of the request by the city of Nicholasville to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
"Sherman Peel (of the Jessamine County Maintenance Garage) was in my office last week, and he said it would probably be on some time next week," said Gary Goldey, city public works superintendent. "He didn't give a specific day."
Goldey added that before the light becomes active, two electronic signs at either end of the signal would be in place letting drivers know the exact date the it becomes operational.
In August, Mayor John Martin told The Jessamine Journal the city has been pushing for a signal in the area for several years.
