If you saw WGNO’s story a couple of weeks ago about the traffic light that was out at Magazine Street and St Andrew, you saw how people are worried that someone would get hurt.

The intersection is one of the trickier ones in the Lower Garden District.  People worried that someone in a car, on a bike, or just walking in the area could get hurt.

The city placed temporary stop signs at the intersection, but people told WGNO News that drivers often ignore the signs or fail to see them if another vehicle, especially a city bus, is blocking their view.

WGNO News contacted the city to see if the problem had been diagnoses and to get a timetable for solving the problem.  As of Wednesday, the light was once again working.
