Stop or go? Baltimore traffic light replaced after intersection showed one red, one green

A traffic light at 25th Street and Maryland Avenue in Baltimore's Remington neighborhood was replaced Thursday, after showing a constant green light for more than an hour.

It made for a bit of a confusing situation, because the intersection’s other traffic signals were working properly, causing the lights to show one red and one green during stoplights.

But it appeared to have caused no accidents.

Baltimore City Department of Transportation spokesman German Vigil said a cable issue caused the malfunction. A crew replaced the broken light at about 3:15 p.m. Thursday.

On Friday, DOT crews were also adjusting traffic signals at two other intersections where the lights were facing the wrong way. Crews were fixing the lights at the intersection of York Road and Northway, and at Greenmount Avenue and 39th Street, Vigil said.

Vigil encouraged residents to report problems with traffic lights to the city by calling 311.
