This doesn't make sense! Due to the federal Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act we are removing sensors that enable traffic signals to respond to traffic load. Reverting to "fixed timing" will increase the amount of time drivers will have to sit with their engines idling and poluting the atmosphere. This is progress? What is left out of the story or is this just another example of your government helping you?

I sense that normal traffic signal operations (including replacing the sensors) will be restored by the beginning of next week.

"Normal traffic signal operations are expected to be restored by the beginning of next week."
If this statement is correct, then one might assume the traffic sensors will be replaced so that traffic signal operations will be restored. But, one should never assume anything. A simple call, or email, to the contacts provided should clarify the published information.

It's one thing rephrase content from one public website (Web Link ) on another public website(danvilleexpress.com) with appropriate crediting ... it's another to investigate and report the news.
