Medical Center Announces Upgrades for Intersection Traffic Arms

As part of making our South Texas Medical Center safer and more user friendly, we have invested $540,000 towards a new project to backlight 15 traffic arms throughout our campus. Not only will these upgrades benefit wayfinding during evening hours, but they will also create a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. The installations will be scheduled over a period of 24 months, some of which have already been completed. We expect the project to be fully finished by July 2018.

Intersections planned for backlight installation:

  • Wurzbach / Ewing Halsell
  • Medical at University Hospital
  • Floyd Curl / Louis Pasteur
  • Floyd Curl / Sid Katz
  • Floyd Curl / Hamilton Wolfe
  • Medical / Babcock
  • Hamilton Wolfe / Ewing Halsell
  • Medical / Sid Katz
  • Babcock / Hamilton Wolfe

Completed intersections:

  • Floyd Curl / Medical
  • Wurzbach / Medical
  • Wurzbach / Merton Minter
  • Wurzbach / Floyd Curl
  • Medical / Ewing Halsell

Also, as part of Phase 10 of this project, the intersection at Louis Pasteur / Ewing Halsell will get new illuminated mast arms. For questions, please contact
