What’s Going on with the Traffic Light on Vernon Street?

Bernard Wagner

Mayor Bernard Wagner also fielded a question on the stoplight at the intersection of Central American Boulevard and Vernon Street. The lighting mechanism at this crossroad was damaged and twisted out of place by Hurricane Lisa last year. Eight months later and it still has not been fixed. Mayor Wagner says that the particular traffic light system falls under the responsibility of the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing, but that as the municipal government, they will try to see how it can be rectified.

“We di look at it because it noh fall under our jurisdiction. That Central American Boulevard lights is under MIDH, but we want to work along with MIDH. Our engineer has been working along with them to get it and I am telling my people just go and fix the light. You can’t concern about that being under the MIDH jurisdiction; we still have to ensure that we provide safety for our children. You are right that that light has been twisted for a long time. Even me when I reach deh, I have to the bend round curve fi see when ih change. So we di work on it and I promise you that we will certainly get it addressed within the next week.”
