Q. Any idea when the lights are going to be fixed (again), on the Leland side of the Memorial Bridge causeway? The lights from the end of the bridge, all the way through the U.S. 421 merge to the end of the light set, are not working again. I know it took them years to fix them when they were out the first time, then they worked for a year. Now it is pitch black through there again, and very dangerous.
A. Ross Kimbro ll, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3 deputy traffic, said a technician was sent to the location on Monday, “and he was able to get the majority of the lights operational.”
“Unfortunately, we are coming to the end of our fiscal year, and will have to wait until our new budget is in place for the more serious problems,” Kimbro said.
The state’s new fiscal year begins July 1.
