Lights - Engaged
It came to my attention that some intersections are getting preferential treatment over one specific roadway. Case in point: the lights at the intersection of Clark and Newport (near the Target) were installed in October 2009 with the promise of being activated within a month. Here we are five months later and zip. Nada. Naranjas, as they say in Newport.
But look over to the Regency Park entrance (pictured) and they have a working traffic light. Interesting. Another traffic light near Alexander H.S. has also been activated lickity split.
Looks like North Laredo gets what it wants, and those on points South have to wait a little longer. Let's call this the Gene Belmares phenomenon. (Councilman Belmares represents the North)
If anyone's listening, please turn on the lights.
Wait, this just in from the City of Laredo:
Due to unforeseen weather conditions, the City of Laredo Traffic Safety Division is postponing activating the traffic signal light at the intersection of Loop 20 and Lakeview. Originally scheduled to be activated on Tuesday, March 16, 2010, it will be activated on Thursday, March 18, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. Traffic signals will remain on flash mode until the traffic signal light is activated.
The lack of love for Newport and Clark continues.
