PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale has announced that due to a temporary power outage by Southern California Edison this week for maintenance and upgrades on Rancho Vista Blvd., two signal lights will be set to flashing red from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 8, and Saturday, Jan. 10.
On Thursday, the signal at Rancho Vista Blvd. and Sierra Highway will flash red.
On Saturday, the signal at Rancho Vista Blvd. and Lockheed Way/8th St. East will flash red.
“With the power out, we have to run the traffic signals by battery power,” said Palmdale’s Communications Manager John Mlynar. “To do so for that length of time requires us to go to a flashing red signal. People traveling in the area may wish to give themselves a few extra minutes to allow for a slowing of traffic.”
