RIDGELAND — City officials have announced a loose slate of projected activity along the Highland Colony Parkway, largely near the Renaissance Costco development, which will extend through late summer.

Mary Beth McCullouch, spokesman for the city of Ridgeland, said that temporary traffic signals will be installed this week at the intersections of Renaissance III and Highland Colony Parkway and Renaissance IV and Highland Colony Parkway. Work began on Jan. 15.   

“The City wants to emphasize the traffic signals installed this week will be temporary and they will be replaced with decorative traffic signals traditionally seen within the City of Ridgeland,” McCullouch said.

The permanent traffic signals are expected to be installed in late summer of this year. McCulloch said commuters can expect to see intermittent periods of construction until then.

Other activity detailed in a Jan. 15 press release from the city included the opening of the Costco fuel center, with temporary traffic signals at the intersection directly in front of the development by the end of the month, followed by the opening of the Costco in March.

By early summer, the city plans to have permanent traffic signals constructed at the Renaissance III intersection and Renaissance IV intersection as well as the Lake Harbour Drive Extension intersection with Highland Colony Parkway.

City officials hope to have permanent traffic signals in operation on Highland Colony Parkway and the Lake Harbour Drive Extension open to traffic by the end of the summer.
