Signal Delays Slow Traffic Through Auburn

A project that was designed to improve the flow of traffic on Highway 49 between Auburn and South Nevada County has actually become more of hinderance for a the time being. Cal Trans Public Information Officer Raquel Borrayo says an electrical issue with the timing systems is delaying traffic. The issue began in mid-October when the new system was connected, and the malfunction is causing all signals to rotate equally rather than based on traffic use.


The lack of coordination can cause additional stops adn longer wait times in both directions.


The timeline for resolution is still undetermined because it is not know in if a repair can be implemented or the electrical cabinets need to be replaced.
