Why is traffic light not in use?

Posted: Wednesday, October 29, 2003

For an unknown reason the yellow blinking traffic signal on Glacier Highway at the old Penske garage entrance of the Kmart building was recently extinguished.

With the fall darkness upon us, and given the signal light's location to Dzantik'i Elementary School and two CBJ transit bus stops, I wondered why the CBJ wouldn't want to keep the light blinking until daylight returns to early morning in the spring.

I drive through this area once or twice a week, shortly after 7 a.m., amongst a lot of people activity - adults crossing Glacier Highway to the bus stops and the kids on their way to school.
