Flashing light caused traffic troubles in Holyoke

Repair won't be done for another two weeks

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Drivers have been misreading the meaning of flashing lights at a busy Holyoke intersection..

Holyoke Fire Department Assistant Superintendent Joe Connor told 22News that drivers had to adjust to the flashing lights at High and Jackson Streets; a light that was fixed on Thursday.

Drivers on High Street faced a flashing yellow light, which means that they needed to slow down and take caution before proceeding through the intersection. The flashing red light, which drivers on Jackson Street faced, means that you need to make a full stop, and then proceed through the intersection only if there is no oncoming traffic.

Holyoke Fire Captain Anthony Cerrutti said there may be cause for more flashing lights while his department replaces intersection lights all along High and Maple Streets.
