What's going on with the stoplights at Ninth and Maine?

The intersection's traffic signals are being reconstructed at a cost of $40,000 to $50,000, said David Woosley, the city's traffic engineer.

A traffic accident last month toppled a utility pole, which in turn dropped a high-voltage utility wire onto a metal mast arm, Woosley said.

"It caused a very large power surge," molting wires and frying computer equipment, Woosley said. "It even blew the bulbs out of the signal heads."

The reconstruction work should put the signals back in operation by the end of July, Woosley said.
