In news that proves sometimes dreams really do come true, the city of Fort Collins is finally doing something to make your commute less terrible when trains are rolling through town.

Officials are proposing to spend $300,000 on software and traffic detectors that would give the city’s traffic signal system more information about the length and impact of train delays and adjust the timing of signals to clear backups after streets are no longer blocked by trains, said Joe Olson, city traffic engineer.

The signal renovations will focus on the traffic at Lemay Avenue, Mulberry Street, College Avenue, and Riverside Avenue.

All I can say is: THANK GOODNESS!
