“Cold weather wreaks havoc with these things. They are probably more swamped than they’ve been in years,” he said.
Until the malfunction can be repaired, there will be no automated signals to aid pedestrians in crossing the street safely. Fortunately, there is very limited traffic on the Lincoln Street sidewalks during the winter and it is likely that the lack of pedestrian signals won’t inconvenience many people.
Klosterkemper cautioned anyone walking through the intersection to use extra care and attention while crossing. He also advised that any further problems will cause the traffic lights to return to the four-way stop flashing light and for drivers to be cautious and attentive while driving through the intersection.
