WINFIELD — City officials expressed frustration over the lack of progress being made on the traffic lights at the main intersection in downtown Winfield after a tornado destroyed the previous lights on Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2021.
That was nearly two years ago.
Now, a set of temporary lights still hang diagonally across the intersection. The awkward angle, combined with a lack of left-turn signals and a dangerous blind hill, have created a dangerous situation that has left citizens and city officials alike frustrated over the delay in repairs.
“I’m really tired of it. I really am,” said City Council member Jeanna Estes during a meeting on Thursday, July 13. “I can’t even go places in town now because of it.”
