AURORA, Colo. — At least six different traffic lights malfunctioned across Aurora Wednesday morning, causing delays during high traffic volume times.
According to the Aurora Police Department’s Facebook page, traffic signals were out around 7:30 a.m. at the intersections of East Quincy Avenue and South Chambers Road, East Colfax Avenue and Peoria Street, South Tower Road and East Jefferson Avenue, East Alameda Avenue and Stouth Abilene Street, East 1st Avenue and Havana Street and the northbound ramp at East Mississippi Avenue and I-225.
The City of Aurora advised drivers to expect significant delays in the areas as crews worked to correct the issues. Aurora was also advising drivers to treat each downed traffic signal as a four-way stop.
“Sorry,” the Aurora Police Department wrote on Facebook. “But we do not have the manpower to station an officer at every intersection to direct traffic.”
As of 10 a.m., a spokesperson for the Aurora Police Department said it appeared all down traffic signals were back up and running.
