Frustrations over a busy Quincy intersection prompt change.
At Monday’s city council meeting, aldermen agreed to spend about $28,000 on four new traffic signal cameras at 48th and Maine.
City engineers say drivers are constantly stuck at the intersection, waiting for the light to change. The cameras on there now have not been working for about two years.
"The old cameras are obsolete," Quincy Utilities Director Jeffrey Conte said. "We need to replace them. They’re no longer functioning. We want to replace them with a newer camera that works with the new traffic controllers that we’ve been installing."
No word yet on when the new cameras will be installed. When they do get up and running, they’ll be able to connect with the software already in place within the stop-lights.
