LAS VEGAS - Drivers say the left turn light from westbound Flamingo Road to southbound Burnham Avenue lasts too long – sometimes reaching five minutes.
This traffic light happens to be the turn a motorist would use to reach the emergency room at Desert Springs Hospital.
In some cases, cars will wait several minutes for the light to turn green, even if crossing traffic is several blocks away.
After Traffic8 reported the issue, the Regional Transportation Commission discovered a hardware problem with the light. RTC officials sent the problem to Clark County, and Public Works will replace the equipment by the end of this week.
