Detection loop acting up at Park and 11thJuly 21st, 2009 by travis baker
The in basket: Gary Reed wrote in mid-July to say, “I’ve noticed the traffic signals at 11th Street and Park Avenue (in Bremerton) are defaulting to green on Park and red on 11th.
“The last several weeks I along with several other cars have stopped on 11th to wait while the cycle runs,” he said, “only there has been no traffic on Park. Is this an intentional revision or is there something amiss with the controller?”
The out basket: There’s a problem with the controller, says Jeff Collins, who heads the city signal shop.
“We are having some trouble with the detection loops,” he said. “The ones on Park keep sticking on and have to be reset.
“The loops need replacing but until finances get better we will continue to reset them when we get notified,” he said. Call (360) 473-5920 from 7:30 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday-Friday to report this or any water, sewer, traffic
sign and traffic signal issues in the city. Leave a message after hours.
