Traffic Signal at the Entrance to Liberty Park now Operational

 

Clarksville Police DepartmentClarksville, TN – The Clarksville Police Department wants to make the public aware that the traffic signal is fully operational, as of today, on Cumberland Drive (Hwy 48/13) in front of the entrance to Liberty Park and the Clarksville Marina. There have already been several “close call” collisions because drivers were unaware the light is functional instead of blinking.

Also, the speed limits in the Liberty Park/Marina will be strictly enforced due to the high volume of vehicular and pedestrian traffic and children playing. The posted speed limit in Liberty Park is 15 mph. “This is not about generating revenue, it’s about keeping the people who are out enjoying the city’s newest park safe,” said Lt. Phil Ashby the head of Clarksville’s Selective Traffic Enforcment Program.
