An email from Enrique Burgos of the city’s Transportation Engineering Division says that new lights are coming to the intersection of 25th and Leigh Streets (the frequent location of fairly serious car accidents):
As a temporary solution, we are going to be changing the existing 8” signal heads to 12”. The new signal heads will be also LED, which are brighter than the existing incandescent bulbs in this intersection. Also, warning signs alerting the signal ahead will be installed.
Our goal is to have by August 2011 a design ready to install mast arm poles with overhead signals. This will improve the safety on motorists and pedestrians.
