About 4 weeks ago, a much-needed stop light was installed finally on Main St by the YMCA and Grace Avenue church, and all the auto places across the street.
Now my question is how long does it take to plug it in and turn the thing on?

The traffic signal construction bid also included adjustments to the EB and WB left-turn lanes on Main Street. These adjustments are needed to help with the signal operations and the pedestrian routes. The signal is designed to work with these changes and will not be turned on until the road construction is complete. The construction contract allowed for 120 days to complete all of the signal and roadway work. This means all work must be complete by July 1, 2012. In this case, the contractor elected to start the signal work immediately and leave the road work until the end. While this signal appeared to be finished a couple of weeks ago, it only just received its power connection from the electric utility provider at the end of last week.
We have been requesting that the contractor get the roadwork finished, however, they are still abiding by the contract and tell us the work will be complete by the contract deadline.
