Texas City taking down 3 sets of traffic lights, including signals near schools

Posted: Thursday, August 21, 2014 12:13 am

With lighter traffic in the areas, the lights make less sense and can lead to drivers waiting for a green light when there are no vehicles on the cross street, said City Engineer Doug Kneupper.
