Lights out: traffic signals malfunction in Winnipeg – Winnipeg

WINNIPEG – Wet weather caused traffic light malfunctions throughout Winnipeg again on Monday.

In most cases, the lights that failed were flashing red in all directions.

The City of Winnipeg is putting special covers designed to prevent the problem on 50 to 80 traffic lights this year. However, it will take several years to get the majority of them covered.

Traffic lights weren’t working at Ellice Avenue and Colony Street on Monday.
