The population of Dead Wood is about 1280 people. The “T” intersection at the fairgrounds entrance on the main street is not signalized. But, when ½ million motorcycle enthusiasts show up at neighboring Sturgis for the annual motorcycle rally every August, it becomes impossible for pedestrians to cross the main street or for vehicles to make a left turn into the fairgrounds. OMJC provided a portable traffic control system that included both a pedestrian actuated cross walk and an actuated left turn lane. The through movements were actuated as well. Traffic moved, pedestrians crossed, and everyone got home safe. The SDDOT smiled.

- two with microwave detection on the through movements
