Resident Bill Murphy recalled one time driving home to cross Main Street at 2 a.m.
“I crossed Main Street to get home, the light changes red and then I’ve got to sit there when there’s no other traffic on the street until it goes through the full cycle,” he said. “Why can’t we just use red as a yield sign, the green as a north/south? We’ve got the technology now.”
He recently spoke to council with a suggestion of having red lights blink for yield and green as go ahead between the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Colin Prang, manager of engineering, said the city is in the process of upgrading the lights.
