Today’s traffic mishap
8/19/2008 Afternoon Update:
As of noon today, the signal is still broken, and 14th Street eastbound from Willow is closed.
Workers on the scene said that the incident actually happened at 5am, but they were notified two hours later at 7am. “We could have been done by now if they had only called us when it happened…”
When asked how long it typically takes to repair damage such as this, I got the “all-in-one” response: “It depends.. could take an hour or two, 25 minutes, all-day or possibly an all-nighter…”

SEE ORIGINAL UPDATE WITH TRACTOR UNDER LIGHT AFTER THE JUMP…
Today, a tractor trailer took down the traffic signal on the southeast corner of the intersection. Luckily it happened at 6am, and didn’t cripple the rush-hour commute.
Thanks, Keith for the pics!
