New Traffic Signal Now Active From I-10 To Highway 29

March 12, 2018

I-10 westbound drivers destined for Highway 29 north toward Cantonment and Highway south to Pensacola are now using the new “Exit 10″.  A new traffic signal on Highway 29, located at the bottom of the ramp, was activated early Monday morning. The light will manage traffic exiting I-10 to Highway 29 south as well as Highway  north and southbound traffic. The old  I-10 “Exit 10A,” will be permanently closed. Photo for, click to enlarge.

    If you are traveling North on 29 you can’t see the light until you get right up on it… is hidden behind the overpass….you can’t see it until you start under it!

    This is only for south bound traffic. Northbound continues to use the current ramp with merge lanes.

    I don’t understand why the old cable system instead of the new polearm system was used for the lights. You can bet that these will be replaced with that system soon. Not that I am a fan of those either.

    If only we could get politicians to use the carrot/stick contract method on road contracts. Penalties for being late and bonuses for finishing early. It works other places and it is surprising how fast the work is done if they have a real incentive to finish the job instead of delay for as long as possible.

    Everyone just needs to slow down to the speed limit and have situation awareness….. you’ll be ok. Like it or not; the intersection and traffic controls are there to stay.

    @Tom—I just used this exit this afternoon (for going Southbound). The photo shows the Southbound exit & light (two left turn lanes?). As soon as you get off the exit, the Northbound lane splits off to the right, & appears to be a merge, & no traffic light for Northbound, so I don’t see a problem for semi truckers. Looking behind the school bus in the photo, is what appears to be the old loop & merge, coming from the other side, which will be torn out.

    I wonder how the semi truckers will be able to make a sharp right turn to go north??
