When are the traffic lights at Second Street and McDonald Drive going to be fixed? The sensors for traffic don't work.

David Woosley, the city's traffic engineer, said there is no money earmarked in the city's budget this year to fix them. The Kansas Turnpike Authority resurfaced McDonald Drive last year and in the process tore out "detector loops" - wires that sense when there's traffic above, he said. "There's no way now to determine whether there's someone waiting or not," he said. He said five of the wires were torn out and that it would cost $1,500 to $2,000 each to fix them. "If we can find some money in (the budget), we may be able to get those repaired this year," he said.
