UPDATE: Squirrels Disable Salina Stoplight

KSAL Staff - September 28, 2017 4:22 pm

A couple of squirrels are blamed for disabling stoplights at a downtown Salina intersection. Traffic signals located at the intersection of N. Santa Fe Avenue and E. Ash Street were recently damaged.

The city tells KSAL News that a set of squirrels got inside the pole. The squirrels chewed / destroyed the wires that run the length of the pole for the signal heads. They twisted and cut the wires to the point that new wires are required.

Since the signal was scheduled to be replaced next summer, it is being left as a four-way stop on a trial basis.

Motorists are encouraged to use caution when traveling through this intersection.

ORIGINAL: An intersection in downtown Salina will be controlled by stop signs for the near future.

According to the City of Salina, traffic signals located at the intersection of N. Santa Fe Avenue and E. Ash Street were recently damaged by wildlife. It is intended that this location be upgraded as part of the downtown streetscape project.

The traffic signals will be bagged and the four-way stop signs will remain in place until further notice.

Motorists are encouraged to use caution when traveling through this intersection.
