PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The new traffic light system that began operation this past spring appears to be working all right as the complaints from the public have died off.
"I haven't received any more complaints from the public regarding the new traffic light system in downtown," said Ben White, Punxsutawney Borough manager at Tuesday's Public Safety Committee meeting.
Punxsutawney Police Department Chief Tom Fedigan said he has not received any complaints about the new system after borough officials met with PennDOT officials regarding the system a few weeks ago.
