WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- For about two years, motorists have been guided at the corner of Court and Main streets in the heart of White Plains by a temporary traffic light.
Pedestrians had grown accustomed to the portable structure until barriers and a bulldozer arrived last week.
That's all going to change soon at White Plains' busy corner outside of Macy's and Starbucks when a new traffic light is installed.
Engineers design the newest models to sway -- but not snap or fall -- in high winds.The former traffic light reportedly fell down during a windstorm.
White Plains Mayor Tom Roach said the delay installing a new, permanent traffic light is because its replacement is part of a broader light replacement contract throughout the city. A firm, deep concrete foundation must be poured for the new light before winter, he said.
