Traffic Signals Out In Northeast Spokane

The panic is over- the streetlights are back up and running.

Time to tuneup your four-way stop skills folks, some traffic signals in an area of Northeast Spokane are not functioning due to a power outage. The dark signals are from Division St. east to Nevada and Hamilton streets from Illinois Ave. north Wellesley Ave.

City crews have brought in generators for major intersections, but other signals are without power.

So here's the official protocal. EVERYONE stops when a signal is out and treats it like a four-way stop.
