Storms Signal Traffic Light Problems for Area Drivers

One of the many issues that arose from Sunday morning's storms was tougher travels on roads.

Due to power outages, many traffic signals were off or blinking red, but among the biggest problems was at Highway 6 and Rock Prairie Road in College Station, where the lights weren't just blinking red. They were turned the wrong way.

High winds sent the metal bar holding the lights for eastbound travelers on Rock Prairie swinging some 120 degrees out of position.

TxDOT Bryan crews brought a crane out of attach to the bar and pull it back into place shortly before noon Sunday.
