Our town leaders can't even get a string of 4 traffic lights to do anything but cause a traffic jam right beside their own courthouse, What kind of TRUE problems do you think they could solve?

They won't blame anyone. They just want something to complain about. Once it's fixed they will be saying, " those red lights stay green to long. Causing traffic to fly threw town.

Get over it.

Im just curious why downtown newport needs the big huge steel structure to hold up a couple red lights. Seems like overkill. All I can come up with is that when some drunk leaves skid row and hits the pole it doesnt break? What else could it be?

And whoever is to blame the light sequence does suck. They might as well stay green 24/7. Theres nothing to miss downtown.

Hey, this traffic light thing is not easy to do. There's more than one of them. It's gonna take some time.

All the bar in downtown are closed now. So I guess they thought red lights and cross walk lights make Newport look better? No drunks leaving a bar to take them down. LOL Newport needs new business downtown for growth, not expensive red lights!!!!!

So call up the city/county economic developer Hurst at his silly partnership scam. You pay him MORE THAN $9100 A MONTH to develop business and you see none and he still gets the money. This is how our city has alwsys worked and you and me keep paying. Traffic lights are minimal compared to no new businesses and no new jobs.

And nuthin you will do about it at all. Something's always comin but nothin ever arrives. And the city and county leadership lets it go on and we all pay the bill. He's no bettr than those carpetbaggers in Washington. No damn better.

One more time. TDOT may have engineered the lights but the city will have to figure it all out. So give the city leadership some time. Couple years ought yo do it. Call City Hall and ask if they need help understanding it all. Be gentle. They're not too bright.
