Driving You Crazy: Mistimed Lights Along MLK Boulevard

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - A viewer says the traffic lights at Martin Luther King Boulevard and Vegas Drive and Martin Luther King Boulevard and Washington Avenue are mistimed.

The viewer says the lights often last more than a minute before changing – even at 3 a.m. when traffic is light.

The viewer, who works a shift that necessitates overnight travel, said those traveling north or south on MLK have to rush to catch a hiccup of a green light, before the long red light kicks in.

Meanwhile, eastbound and westbound commuters on Vegas Drive, Owens Avenue and Washington Avenue benefit from a relatively permanent green light.

Traffic8 contacted the Regional Transportation Commission. RTC FAST found a malfunction, corrected it, and the light is now timed correctly with both traffic lights. The lights are now timed at 20 seconds of green and 20 seconds of red for all directions.
